Oy! Seinfeld Shells Out $100K for Violating Sabbath

1/18/2007 7:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jerry Seinfeld lost a lawsuit today for -- gevalt! -- violating the Jewish Sabbath. A shonda!

A Manhattan judge ruled today that the comedian owes $100,000 to a New York real estate broker, Tamara Cohen, who helped him find a nearly $4 million townhouse on the Upper West Side. Back in February 2005, Seinfeld paid her bupkes (that is, nothing) as a commission on the deal because, he claimed, Cohen didn't show the apartment to him and his wife Jessica -- on the Jewish Sabbath, the day they wanted to see it. Such a tummler he is!

Cohen sued Seinfeld, saying that he knew she observed the Sabbath, which begins Friday at sundown, lasting until Saturday sundown. The judge agreed, ordering Seinfeld to cough up the gelt, about $100K. Shoyn. (Done.)

and for the stupidest reason I've ever heard.

jerry must've thought hilary swank's pad was tooooooooooooo expensive at 8.3mil. his looks waaaaaaaaay nicer, too. at least he has real steps up to his pad, hers is sort of like smuck up against the street, people can hork all over your newspaper, full of TB germs, and who knows what else!!
anyway, the jewy real estate agent shouldn't get a cent, and that jewy jerry was right to challenge it in court.

He just owed the co-broke portion of the commission...not the whole thing. So roughly 100K was just about half of the total.

I'm a big Seinfeld fan, disappointing to hear this, considering he has more money than God. BTW- could his wife look more hideous in this picture?

Just another example of Orthodox Jews and their outdated, outmoded, and obsolete religion... in a world that no longer has room for such secular beliefs.


Oh...

... Fundamentalist Christians, Muslims and everyone else... that includes you, too. You can all jump in the tar pit together. God hates you. (please detect sarcasm in last line)

School's out.
