Every nonresident applicant shall file an irrevocable consent that suits and actions
may be commenced against such applicant in any of the courts of record of this State,
by the service of any process or pleading authorized by the laws of this State in
any county in which the plaintiff may reside, by serving the same on the Executive
Director of the Commission, said consent stipulating and agreeing that such service
of such process or pleadings on said Executive Director shall be taken and held in
all courts to be valid and binding as if due service had been made personally upon
the applicant in this State. This consent shall be duly acknowledged, and, if made by a corporation, shall be
executed by an officer of the corporation. The signature of the officer on the consent to service instrument shall be sufficient
to bind the corporation and no further authentication is necessary. An application from a corporation or other business entity shall be signed by an
officer of the corporation or entity or by an individual designated by the Commission. In all cases where process or pleadings shall be served, under the provisions of
this Chapter, upon the Executive Director of the Commission, such process or pleadings
shall be served in duplicate, one of which shall be filed in the office of the Commission
and the other shall be forwarded immediately by the Executive Director of the Commission,
by registered mail, to the last known business address of the nonresident licensee
against which such process or pleadings are directed.
