Highlight

A judgment is void for purposes of N.D.R.Civ.P. 60(b)(4) only if the court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over the action or personal jurisdiction over the parties.

A motion to vacate a judgment for excusable neglect lies within the sound discretion of the district court, and the court’s decision will not be disturbed on appeal unless the court abused its discretion.

In assessing the reasonableness of a delay in bringing a N.D.R.Civ.P. 60(b) motion, the relevant period usually is measured from the time at which the moving party could have filed the motion, which is not necessarily the date on which the underlying judgment was entered.
