residence of corporation
Residence only as declared by law in the state of incorporation. 18 Am J2d Corp § 159. For purposes of venue, a corporation is a "resident" of the county designated in its articles of association, its certificate of registered agent, and its annual reports regularly filed, and its place of doing business and its offices; and an action against the corporation transitory in its nature may properly be brought in that county even though the corporation's principal and only office is in fact located over the county line in an adjoining county. Higgins v Hampshire Products, 319 Mich 674, 30 NW2d 390, 175 ALR 1083. Within the meaning of a state statute making the county in which the defendant resides a proper county for the trial of the action, the county in which lies the place designated by a foreign corporation as its principal office and place of business within the state in the papers filed by it with the secretary of state and the county clerk as a condition precedent to its doing business in the state, is its residence. Anno: 129 ALR 1289.
