First Citizens Bank & Trust Company and the third-party defendants appeal the district court's order denying J.N.O.V. and a new trial. After hearing oral argument and reviewing the district court's opinion, we conclude that both appeals are without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Frizzell Construction Co., Inc. v. First Citizens Bank & Trust Company, 759 F. Supp. 286 (E.D.N.C. 1991).
