Water Pik, Inc. v. Med-Systems, Inc.
Univ of Utah v. Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Zur Forderung der Wissenschaften E.V.

Yesh Music, et al. v. Lakewood Church, et al.

Plaintiff-Appellee filed a copyright infringement complaint against Defendant-Appellant, which it later voluntarily dismissed without prejudice. Plaintiff-Appellee subsequently filed a motion to vacate its voluntary dismissal under Rule 60(b), which the district court granted. Because we find that a voluntary dismissal without prejudice is a “final proceeding” under Rule 60(b) and the district court did not abuse its discretion in dismissing this case, we AFFIRM.
