Stevens v. Miller, 11-5343

A district court's denial of the state's Rule 60(b)(6) motion to vacate a grant of habeas relief is affirmed, where the motion was nothing more than an untimely Rule 60(b)(1) motion masquerading as a Rule 60(b)(6) motion, and the trial court did not abuse its discretion in denying it.
