This Note has several objectives. First, it will describe the origins, development, and rationale of both the foreign/natural and reasonable expectations test in other jurisdictions, as well as trace the growth of the former test in North Carolina and its eventual demise. In addition, it will analyze the court's decision, and examine the reasons given for it by comparing the decision to that of the recent national trend. Finally, this Note will explore the consequences of the court's decision and determine whether the course chosen was the proper one.
