Judge Tjoflat: "I Was Wron......"

There's a surprising lack of internet information regarding Fonzie from Happy Days' inability to say "I was wrong."

Here's the best link I could come up with, which isn't much.

But if you watch the above clip starting around 1:45, you'll remember what I mean.

Anyways, Judge Tjoflat overcame his inner Fonzie and admitted he just was flat-out wrong about CAFA jurisdiction, reversing himself in a widely-criticized opinion that was the subject of much tsurris in the district courts:
There is no requirement in a class action brought originally or on removal under CAFA that any individual plaintiff’s claim exceed $75,000.
 There, was that so hard?

"These days are yours and mine, Happy Days!"
