If the opposing party does not respond and it turns out there is a hearing, will the opposing party be invited and notified of that hearing? How important is the written reply to the original motion at the hearing itself?
The motion I intend to file is actually one to vacate a judgment based on Rule 60(d)(3) on the grounds of fraud upon the court which is judicial bias. Say the opposing party doesn't answer the motion then doesn't show up at the hearing either--might that result in a "default" in this type of instance, or no?
