RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina Court of Appeals on Tuesday upheld a $160,000 alienation of affection lawsuit.

The case out of Onslow County involved Walter Heller, who sued his wife's boyfriend and two people who encouraged their extramarital affair.

North Carolina is one of seven states that still allow jilted spouses to sue marriage wreckers for money.
