Carter v. Anderson, No. 08-3372

By FindLaw Staff on October 30, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

District court's order denying death-row inmate's claim for relief under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(b)(6) is affirmed as a movant that seeks relief under Rule 60(b) must show extraordinary circumstances justifying the reopening of a final judgment and, in this case, the motion fails because the defendant cannot prove by clear and convincing evidence that the warden committed fraud on the court.
