Grupo Cementos De Chihuahua S.A.B. De C.V., 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 602, __ F.4th __ (10th Cir. Jan. 10, 2023), the Tenth Circuit affirmed the district court’s refusal to vacate an earlier U.S. judgment confirming a foreign arbitration award.

Nonetheless, the Tenth Circuit held that the district court acted within its discretion in denying a F.R.C.P. 60(b)(5) motion to vacate the U.S. judgment.
