Short answer to your question is no. Civil Rule 30 governs how and when depositions can be taken, however that rule is silent on the number of depositions that can be taken. However, depositions cannot be repetitive or taken for an improper purpose such as to intimidate or harass the party opponent, e.g. the defendant cannot continually request to depose the plaintiff for the mere purpose of pressuring the plaintiff into giving up the lawsuit.
