be taken within 75 miles of that person’sresidence or within a 150 miles of your residence in that county, which the lawsuit is filed. there’s a different rule for what they callnon-natural parties or persons. in other words, a corporate entity, a limitedliability company, a professional corporation, something where one person doesn’t embodythe whole corporation in and of themselves. these rules on limitations for travel applyto natural persons, either parties or non parties to the deposition. the rules on where a non natural parties depositioncan be taken are completely different than those of natural parties either to a caseor not to a case.
