Generally speaking, a defendant has 30 days to file a notice to remove a case from state court to federal court. In most coverage cases, the deadline begins to run when the defendant receives the complaint. In some instances, however, the defendant does not know until a later point that the amount in controversy is sufficient to allow it to remove. A recent case found that later point to be after the plaintiff’s admission that the amount in controversy exceeded $100,000.
