Kansas judge tells government debt collectors they can’t hound a broke 58-year-old woman until her 84th birthday

In 1991, Vicky Jo Metz borrowed $16,613 to pay for tuition; now she’s 59, and has paid back 90% of that money — and she still owes $67,277. Metz is broke and has filed for bankruptcy. But thanks to a law signed by Bill Clinton, it’s almost impossible to discharge your student debt through bankruptcy.
