Winkler Testifies in Ritter Med Mal Trial

In keeping with Sheila's torts-and-pop-culture vein (see yesterday's "Peggy Sue Got Sued"), this post is about two of the biggest stars of 1970's sitcoms:  Henry Winkler ("Happy Days") and John Ritter ("Three's Company").  Yesterday, Winkler testified in the medical malpractice suit brought by the family of the late John Ritter.  Winkler was a combination fact and damage witness, in that he was a long-time friend of Ritter's and was on the set of "Eight Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter" on the day Ritter died.  I'm a little chagrined to say this, but E!Online has the details.
