The parties agree that the complaint’s “course of dealing” claim was actually a mislabeled claim for breach of an implied-in-fact contract. The fact that a plaintiff might have mislabeled his claim is of no significance in ruling on a motion to dismiss pursuant to N.C. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6).
Defendant’s motion to dismiss is denied.
