LitFunding Emerges From Bankruptcy

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 12, 2006 -- LitFunding Corp. (OTCBB: LFDG) today announced the receipt of an order of final decree closing its bankruptcy proceedings on the grounds that the bankruptcy case has been fully administered.

An involuntary bankruptcy petition was filed against LitFunding on April 2, 2003. A formal order for relief was entered in the case on November 19, 2003. On June 17, 2004, the bankruptcy court entered an order confirming the Plan of Reorganization. On March 22, 2006, LitFunding filed a motion seeking a final decree. "As a result of meeting our obligations pursuant to the Plan of Reorganization, the court has ordered our final decree, and our reorganization case closed," stated Morton Reed, CEO of LitFunding.

According to Mr. Reed, LitFunding has been pursuing completion of its Imperial line of financing and developing its new line of business through the recently acquired subsidiary, Easy Money Express. Reed further stated, "As a result of our emergence from bankruptcy, we anticipate greater focus on our business, and a greater ability to finance our business opportunities. The cost of the bankruptcy, the cost of administering the bankruptcy, and the cost of lost business opportunities has been significant. We are now focused, without the distraction and cost of the bankruptcy. For those stockholders who have stayed with us during this most trying time, we appreciate your loyalty. It is now time for us to demonstrate our appreciation for that loyalty."
