Whether a verdict should be set aside, otherwise than for error of law, rests in the sound discretion of the trial judge. Here the trial judge, “being of the opinion that justice and equity” required that he do so, exercised such discretion and set the verdict aside. The record discloses no abuse of discretion; hence, the order is not subject to review on appeal. Brink v. Black, 74 N.C. 329; Bird v. Bradburn, 131 N.C. 488, 42 S.E. 936; Goodman v. Goodman, 201 N.C. 808, 161 S.E. 686; In re Blair, 230 N.C. 753, 55 S.E. 2d 504; Williams v. Stumpf, 243 N.C. 434, 90 S.E. 2d 688.
