The gang from "Happy Days" has received a setback in its $10 million lawsuit over merchandising sales against CBS, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Hollywood Esq. blog.
Los Angeles Judge Elizabeth Allen White threw out a charge that CBS committed fraud by allegedly cheating the actors out of money from licensed consumer products that featured their faces, the piece reports.
According to the story, that means the actors, including Marion Ross, Erin Moran and the widow of Tom Bosley, can’t receive punitive damages at the June 2012 trial.
In a statement, CBS said it was "thrilled" at the court’s decision.
