Law’s Jonathan Adler theorizes about potential move by Biden administration

How the Supreme Court could be forced to wade into Biden debt ceiling fight
Washington ExaminerJonathan Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law, said that a potential move by the Biden administration to invoke the 14th Amendment to prevail over the debt limit fight would likely prompt the review by the Supreme Court. But the “legal issues there are serious [and] the arguments that the executive branch could essentially bypass the debt limit are quite audacious and ones that have been considered and rejected for years,” he said.
