Federal Court Denies Apollo's Motion to Dismiss Debt Resolve's Lawsuit

    Debt Resolve wins another court ruling

announced today that the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York,
in a decision dated October 5, 2007, has denied a motion for summary judgment

submit to discovery on all issues including infringement to be completed by
December 31, 2007.

willful infringement.

another victory for us. We intend to continue to vigorously enforce our patent
and intellectual property rights against those who would infringe those
