Supreme Court of North Carolina.

MICHAEL C. PIRO v. REBECCA HADDEN MCKEEVER, L.C.S.W.; CYNTHIA L. SAPP, Ph.D.; KAREN BARRY, M.F.T., LMFT; and DAVIDSON COUNSELING ASSOCIATES

No. 93A16

    Decided: December 21, 2016

Wyrick Robbins Yates & Ponton LLP, by Tobias S. Hampson and Michelle D. Connell, for plaintiff-appellant. Epstein Law Firm, PLLC, by Andrew J. Epstein, for defendant-appellee Rebecca Hadden McKeever, L.C.S.W. McGuireWoods LLP, by Mark E. Anderson and Monica E. Webb, for National Association of Social Workers, amicus curiae.

In this case we consider whether plaintiff's complaint sufficiently alleged claims for negligent infliction of emotional distress and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Because the members of the Court are equally divided as to both issues, the holding of the Court of Appeals is left undisturbed and stands affirmed without precedential value. See, e.g., State v. Long, 365 N.C. 5, 705 S.E.2d 735 (2011) (per curiam); State v. Greene, 298 N.C. 268, 258 S.E.2d 71 (1979) (per curiam).

AFFIRMED.

Justice ERVIN did not participate in the consideration or decision of this case.

PER CURIAM.
