RIBANDO v. AM. CYANAMID CO.


20 A.D.2d 781 (1964)

Peter Ribando, Respondent, v. American Cyanamid Company et al., Defendants, and Robert Campanella, Appellant

Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, First Department.

March 24, 1964


Judgment in favor of plaintiff unanimously reversed on the law, the facts, and in the exercise of discretion, the verdict vacated and a new trial granted, with costs to defendant-appellant unless plaintiff, within 15 days after service of a certified copy of the order entered herein with notice of entry, stipulates to accept $5,000 in lieu of the award by verdict as reduced by the court, in which event the judgment is modified to that extent and as thus modified, affirmed, with one-half costs to defendant-appellant. In this action for personal injuries it is evident that an award of damages in excess of $5,000 is not warranted by the record.
