A court may set aside a judgment that is obtained as a result of fraud if: 1.) after the discovery of fraud, the movant files a motion to open promptly; 2.) the movant acts diligently in attempting to discover and to expose fraud; 3.) clear proof exists of fraud; and 4.) a substantial likelihood exists that the results of a new trial will be different.
