On Saturday, Judge Rudolph Contreras of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, issued a decision that vacacted several provisions of the Gainful Employment regulations released by the Department of Education last year. The decision in a suit brought by the Association of Private Sector Colleges & Universities found that the two debt repayment measures in the regulations were "arbitrary and capricious." In addition, the ruling vacated a requirement to submit data related to the debt calculation as well as a requirement to seek Department approval for all new programs.
