cnevans is referring specifically to Reg 35.5(f): Unless the Appeals Board or a Workers' Compensation Administrative Law Judge orders otherwise or the parties agree otherwise, whenever a party is legally entitled to depose the evaluator, the evaluator shall make himself or herself available for deposition within at least one hundred twenty (120) days of the notice of deposition and, upon the request of the unrepresented injured worker and whenever consistent with Labor Code section 5710, the deposition shall be held at the location at which the evaluation examination was performed, or at a facility or office chosen by the deposing party that is not more than 20 miles from the location of the evaluation examination.
