N.Y. Eminent Domain Procedure Law Section 511
Joint or consolidated trials

(A) In proceedings under subdivision (A) of section five hundred one, two or more acquisition claims arising from the same project may, at the discretion of the court, be heard and determined by the court in one trial or proceeding. When some, but not all claims arising from a single project have been filed, and the court shall determine that a joint or consolidated trial is desirable, the court, upon motion of any party, may order that any condemnee who has not yet done so, file a claim in accordance with the provisions of this act within one hundred twenty days after service of a copy of the order. If a condemnee fails to file a claim within the one hundred twenty day period, his claim shall thereafter be tried upon the proof presented. Nothing in this section shall extend the period for filing a claim as provided within section five hundred three of this law. (B) In proceedings under subdivision (B) of section five hundred one the court may conduct all trials relating to a project as a single proceeding in one or more parts, or may consolidate and order that a joint trial be had of the claims of any parties filing separate notices of appearance as the orderly administration of justice shall require.
