The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that on March 13, 2000, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia entered a Final Judgment of Permanent Injunction finding that Long Distance Direct Holdings, Inc. was delinquent in its obligation to make available to the investing public current and accurate information about its financial condition and results of operations through the filing of periodic reports with the Commission as required by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 ("Exchange Act") Section 13(a) and Rules 12b-25, 13a-1 and 13a-13 thereunder.
