If a Defendant receives a served complaint in which they know right off the bat that all defending parties named therein are outside the state in which the Plaintiff is a citizen, when does the 30-day timer start so as to timely file a notice of removal to federal court from state court? More specifically, does the timer start only at the immediate time of Defendants' knowledge that the minimum jurisdiction requirement of $75,000 is alleged by Plaintiff (such as through an initial disclosure)? For example, what if Plaintiff's Complaint doesn't specify numerical monetary damages, and is generally just claiming damages without listing specific numbers? Is it 30 days from the receipt of the complaint, or 30 days from the date of not only complaint, but also knowledge of jurisdictional limit?Also, when it comes to corporations and LLC's, what constitutes an actual "principal place of business" for determining diversity jurisdiction? Would an LLC's or Corporation's regional headquarters (West, East, South, etc.) likely be viewed as a principal place of business, even if there are multiple regional headquarters?
