He Refused To Give a Get Now He Must Pay...

$47,500 to Stephanie Bruker, 48, as awarded by a the supreme court of Canada.

Justice Rosalie Abella, representing the majority, said courts can referee religious disputes if they "take into account the particular religion, the particular religious right, and the particular personal and public consequences -- including the religious consequences -- of enforcing that right," the newspaper reported.

The two dissenting judges said the court had no place in religious disputes.

The couple divorced in 1980 after 11 years of marriage. Husband Jason Marcovitz then refused to honor a prenuptial agreement that included a requirement to provide a get. In 1995, Marcovitz granted the get when Bruker was 46, unmarried and past child-bearing age.
