“Procedurally Improper”

Giambruno v Crazy Donkey Bar & Grill, 2009 NY Slip Op 06664 (App. Div., 2nd, 2009)

[I[t was procedurally improper, under the circumstances of this case, for
the court to enter a judgment reducing the damages awarded to those
plaintiffs without giving them an opportunity to stipulate to a
reduction or elect a new trial in the alternative
(see Leger v Chasky, 55 AD3d 564, 565-566; Zukowski v Gokhberg, 31 AD3d 633, 634; Tri-State Aluminum Prods. v Paramount Macaroni Mfg. Co., 247 AD2d 606, 607; Barcliff v Brooklyn Hosp., 212 AD2d 562, 564).

The bold is mine.
