A judge has ruled that comedian Jerry Seinfeld must pay real estate broker Tamara Cohen a commission of at least $98,750 for his $3.95 million Manhattan townhouse. Seinfeld had testified that Cohen did not deserve the payment, as she had not been available when he and his wife wanted to see the home. The Seinfelds also testified that they did not know that the reason Cohen did not return their calls was that she was an observant Jew and observed the Sabbath.
