Section: Retention of jurisdiction
a. Every CATV company shall at all times keep within this State all records, books, accounts, documents and other writings relating to contracts entered into, transactions had, services rendered, business done and property within this State, and shall at no time remove any of such records, books, accounts, documents or writings from this State without the consent in writing of the board first had and obtained. The board may by order in writing grant consent and permission under such regulations and conditions as it may see fit to impose for the keeping of any such records, books, accounts, documents and other writings outside the State in such cases as it may determine that such consent or permission may be of financial advantage to the customers of the CATV company within this State. Such consent or permission so granted may be revoked by the board at any time without notice. A CATV company granted such consent or permission shall on the notice in writing of the board produce such records, books, accounts, documents and other writings at such time and place within this State as it may designate.
b. Every CATV company shall file with the board a designation in writing of an agent, resident of this State, who shall have the custody of such records, books, accounts, documents and other writings, and upon whom process for the protection of the same may be served. Such designation shall set out the name of such agent, his place of residence within the State and his place of business. A CATV company may at any time revoke such designation if simultaneously a substituted designation be filed by it with the board.
c. Jurisdiction and power are hereby conferred upon the Superior Court, at the suit of the board, to enforce compliance with this section through sequestration of, or the appointment of a receiver for, the property in this State of any CATV company failing to comply with the same.
d. If for any cause service of process to produce such records, books, accounts, documents or other writings cannot be effected upon a designated agent, service may be made within this State upon any officer, agent or employee of such CATV company having custody or control of the same, or access thereto.
