In re Estate of Willey, 2016 UT 53 (Nov. 22, 2016)

In an appeal from a denial of a motion seeking relief from court order under Utah Rules of Civil Procedure 60(b), the Utah Supreme Court held that Rule 60(b) motions must be filed under their appropriate headings.  Specifically, Rule 60(b)(6) is not a catch-all when the grounds for setting aside the judgment are covered under 60(b)(1)-(5).  The court affirmed the denial of the motion.
