Eric Nederlander ordered to pay up to estranged wife

Nederlander split from psychologist Lindsey Kupferman in 2008, just weeks after their daughter Mira was born and the former couple has been locked in a bitter court battle ever since.

But on Thursday (03Jan13) a panel of appellate judges ruled the theatre boss must pay his share of the mortgage on a pad they bought as newlyweds nine years ago.

Kupferman’s lawyer, Martha Cohen Stine, tells the New York Post, “We’re greatly relieved.”

The two will return to Manhattan Civil Court on 22 January (13) to try and iron out the terms of their divorce settlement.
