                            CHAPTER 500-S.F.No. 862 
                  An act relating to motor vehicles; providing for 
                  service of process for certain alleged violations; 
                  providing civil penalty; amending Minnesota Statutes 
                  1992, section 168.27, by adding a subdivision. 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 168.27, is 
        amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
           Subd. 19a.  [INJUNCTION.] The commissioner or a county 
        attorney may institute a civil action in the name of the state 
        in district court for an injunction prohibiting a violation of 
        this section.  The court, upon proper proof that the defendant 
        has engaged in a practice prohibited by this section, may enjoin 
        the future commission of that practice.  It is not a defense to 
        an action that the state may have adequate remedies at law.  
        Service of process must be as in any other civil suit, except 
        that where a defendant in the action is a natural person or firm 
        residing outside the state, or is a foreign corporation, service 
        of process may also be made by personal service outside the 
        state; in the manner provided by section 303.13, subdivision 1, 
        paragraph (3); or as the court may direct.  Process is valid if 
        it satisfies the requirements of due process of law, whether or 
        not the defendant is doing business in Minnesota regularly or 
        habitually.  Nothing in this subdivision limits the rights or 
        remedies otherwise available to persons under common law or 
        other statutes of this state. 
           Presented to the governor April 20, 1994 
           Signed by the governor April 22, 1994, 1:59 p.m.
