The broker had legal justification to hold only one-half of the deposit; he must give the their half to the seller
This conduct would probably subject the broker to disciplinary action by the real estate commissioner
The broker needs to look out for the best interest of the seller at all times, even if that means performing acts against the sellers will.
The broker had legal justification to refuse to give the deposit money to the seller
