Today, the Sixth Circuit affirms a district court’s refusal to vacate a judgment after the appellant lost at trial and in an appeal.  The case involves claims under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act.  The court of appeals held that Rule 60(b)(6) allows vacatur of judgments as a result of intervening changes in controlling law but only in extremely rare circumstances.  GenCorp v. Olin Corp., No. 05-4439  (6th Cir. Feb. 12, 2007).
