Section 12-21-70

Authentication of foreign state, territory, or country's legislative acts; effect thereof.

The acts of the legislature of any state or territory or of any country subject to the jurisdiction of the United States shall be authenticated by having the seals of such state, territory or country affixed thereto. The record and judicial proceedings of the courts of any state or territory or of any such country shall be proved or admitted in any other court within the United States by the attestation of the clerk and the seal of the court annexed, if there is a seal, together with a certificate of the judge, Chief Justice or presiding magistrate that the said attestation is in due form. The said records and judicial proceedings so authenticated shall have such faith and credit given to them in every court within the United States as they have by law or usage in the courts of the state from which they are taken.
