10176.1.  (a) (1) Whenever the commissioner takes any enforcement or
disciplinary action against a licensee, and the enforcement or
disciplinary action is related to escrow services provided pursuant
to paragraph (4) of subdivision (a) of Section 17006 of the Financial
Code, upon the action becoming final the commissioner shall notify
the Insurance Commissioner and the Commissioner of Business Oversight
of the action or actions taken. The purpose of this notification is
to alert the departments that enforcement or disciplinary action has
been taken, if the licensee seeks or obtains employment with entities
regulated by the departments.
   (2) The commissioner shall provide the Insurance Commissioner and
the Commissioner of Business Oversight, in addition to the
notification of the action taken, with a copy of the written
accusation, statement of issues, or order issued or filed in the
matter and, at the request of the Insurance Commissioner or the
Commissioner of Business Oversight, with any underlying factual
material relevant to the enforcement or disciplinary action. Any
confidential information provided by the commissioner to the
Insurance Commissioner or the Commissioner of Business Oversight
shall not be made public pursuant to this section. Notwithstanding
any other provision of law, the disclosure of any underlying factual
material to the Insurance Commissioner or the Commissioner of
Business Oversight shall not operate as a waiver of confidentiality
or any privilege that the commissioner may assert.
   (b) The commissioner shall establish and maintain, on the Web site
maintained by the Bureau of Real Estate, a database of its
licensees, including those who have been subject to any enforcement
or disciplinary action that triggers the notification requirements of
this section. The database shall also contain a direct link to the
databases, described in Section 17423.1 of the Financial Code and
Section 12414.31 of the Insurance Code and required to be maintained
on the Web sites of the Department of Corporations and the Department
of Insurance, respectively, of persons who have been subject to
enforcement or disciplinary action for malfeasance or misconduct
related to the escrow industry by the Insurance Commissioner and the
Commissioner of Business Oversight.
   (c) There shall be no liability on the part of, and no cause of
action of any nature shall arise against, the State of California,
the Bureau of Real Estate, the Real Estate Commissioner, any other
state agency, or any officer, agent, employee, consultant, or
contractor of the state, for the release of any false or unauthorized
information pursuant to this section, unless the release of that
information was done with knowledge and malice, or for the failure to
release any information pursuant to this section.
