Title 13 : Crimes and Criminal Procedure

Chapter 232 : Vermont Electronic Communication Privacy Act

(Cite as: 13 V.S.A. § 8107)
  • § 8107. Criminal process issued by Vermont court; reciprocity

    (a) Criminal process, including subpoenas, search warrants, and other court orders issued pursuant to this chapter, may be served and executed upon any service provider within or outside the State, provided the service provider has contact with Vermont sufficient to support personal jurisdiction over it by this State. Notwithstanding any other provision in this chapter, only a service provider may challenge legal process, or the admissibility of evidence obtained pursuant to it, on the ground that Vermont lacks personal jurisdiction over it.

    (b) This section shall not be construed to limit the authority of a court to issue criminal process under any other provision of law.

    (c) A service provider incorporated, domiciled, or with a principal place of business in Vermont that has been properly served with criminal process issued by a court of competent jurisdiction in another state, commonwealth, territory, or political subdivision thereof shall comply with the legal process as though it had been issued by a court of competent jurisdiction in this State. (Added 2015, No. 169 (Adj. Sess.), § 5, eff. Oct. 1, 2016.)
