1630. Process agent

Each nonresident

doing business in this state in his individual capacity, or as copartner or

member of a copartnership or association required by sections 1621 and 1623 of

this title to file the returns therein specified, or under any name other than

his own, except as otherwise provided, shall appoint in writing a person having

an office or place of business and residing in the town wherein the principal

office of such nonresident, copartnership or association is located, upon whom

process against such nonresident may be served in an action founded upon a

liability incurred in this state. Such appointment shall continue in force

until revoked by a like instrument appointing another person therein residing,

and having therein an office or place of business. Such instrument shall be

appointed a process agent, and has not filed such appointment, as set forth in

this section, the secretary of state shall be such process agent. (Amended
