In Bouret-Echevarría v. Caribbean Aviation Maintenance Corp.,784 F.3d 37 (1st Cir. 2015) (No. 13-2549), the First Circuit addressed the question of what constitutes reasonable time for a post judgment motion under FRCP 60(b).  Eighteen months after a defense verdict in a wrongful death arising out of a helicopter crash, plaintiff learned that the jury’s verdict may have been influenced by jurors who improperly received information that plaintiff had declined a confidential $3.5 million settlement offer. The district court rejected the motion, ruling that eighteen months was too long after the verdict to reopen the matter.  The First Circuit reversed, holding that the relevant time was the time between when the plaintiff learned of the fact that they argue undermined the verdict and when the plaintiff brought the motion.  Here, that was 3 1/2 months, which the appellate court held was reasonable.  Thus, it reversed the district court and remanded the matter for an evidentiary hearing into the allegations of juror impropriety.
