Highlight

A party moving for relief from a judgment under N.D.R.Civ.P. 60(b) has the burden to establish sufficient grounds for disturbing the finality of the decree, and relief should be granted only in exceptional circumstances.
Whether a motion for relief from judgment has been timely made is within the district court's discretion and will not be overturned on appeal unless the court abuses its discretion.
