IDI, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IDI), an information solutions provider, today announced that on September 10, 2015 the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida dismissed the securities class action lawsuit [ Heim v. IDI, Inc., et al., Case No. 9:15-cv-81019] filed against the Company and certain of its officers. This action was voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiff with no payment made to plaintiff or plaintiff's attorneys.

Mr. Derek Dubner, Co-CEO of IDI, Inc. stated, "We have maintained that this action was frivolous and that we would defend it, and any like it, vigorously. This lawsuit was premised upon an Internet article, written by an anonymous and admitted short seller of IDI's stock, which contained certain misrepresentations and factual inaccuracies about the Company and certain members of management. Despite the numerous press releases issued by various law firms, we are pleased to have secured the dismissal of the sole lawsuit upon which they rely."
