COLCHESTER, Conn., June 11, 2004 -LAWFUEL – Scott + Scott, LLC, a Connecticut law
firm with offices in Ohio and California, announced that it has commenced an
investigation into Bally Total Fitness Holding Corporation (NYSE: BFT). On
April 28, 2004, the Company issued a press release announcing that its Chief
Financial Officer and Director, John W. Dwyer, had resigned and that the
Division of Enforcement of the Securities & Exchange Commission of the United
States had commenced an investigation in connection with the Company’s
announced restatement regarding the timing of recognition of certain prepaid
dues. The Company also stated that it had modified its existing internal
controls structure, which it believes is now effective. In response to these
disclosures, shares of the Company’s stock fell approximately 17%, to close at
$4.50 per share, on extremely heavy trading volume. A complaint has been
filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of
Illinois on behalf of purchasers of publicly traded securities of this Company
from August 3, 1999 to April 28, 2004. It is alleged that the Company
reported revenues that were materially overstated due to violations of
Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. During the class period, this stock
traded above thirty dollars per share. If you would like to discuss this
