What is the equivalent of a CCP 473 (California) motion in

Customer Question

What is the equivalent of a CCP 473 (California) motion in Federal Court? My assistant forgot to file an opposition to a motion, and we did not find out until the court ruled against us on the basis that we did not oppose the motion. She thought she had filed it electronically, and in fact filed the proposed order and proof of service and will do a declaration under penalty of perjury stating same.

The Federal equivalent of the CA CCP section 473 rule is Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Rule 60: https://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/frcp/rule_60
