Cast members of “Happy Days” were essentially told to “Sit on It!” by a California judge.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White threw out claims by cast members of the legendary series that CBS committed fraud by not paying them the proper amount for merchandising sales, according to CNN. The judge ruled in favor of CBS after the cast sued the network and the case will now proceed strictly as a breach of contract suit scheduled for June 26, 2012.

Four members of the cast including Marion Ross, Don Most, Anson Williams and Erin Moran joined Tom Bosley’s widow in the suit, stating that they had not been paid what they are owed for the worldwide sale of “Happy Days” merchandise. Show products include comic books, T-shirts, scrapbooks, trading cards, games, lunch boxes, dolls, toy cars, magnets, greeting cards and DVDs where their images appear on the box covers. The series ran from 1974 to 1984.

Maybe they can meet up at Arnold’s for a milkshake to regroup.
