(a) Each individual transaction which is in violation of this chapter or which does not otherwise conform to the requirements of this chapter shall be considered a violation.
(b) This chapter shall be enforceable only by the commissioner and does not create any private cause of action or other private legal recourse.
(c) The commissioner may, in his or her discretion and upon good cause shown, revoke the certificate of authority of a title agent, revoke the license issued to a title insurer, or impose a fine in an amount not to exceed five hundred dollars ($500) for each violation of this chapter or of any rule or regulation promulgated under this chapter. No title insurer shall pay, directly or indirectly, any portion of a fine imposed on any agent of the title insurer. In addition, the commissioner may impose a fine in an amount not to exceed five thousand dollars ($5,000) per violation upon a finding that an agent or an insurer willfully or intentionally deviated from the filed rates for that insurer. Any fine collected by the commissioner shall be deposited into the State General Fund.
(d) If, from any examination of a title insurer, the commissioner finds that a title insurer is violating any of the provisions of Section 34-3-7, the commissioner shall so certify his or her findings in writing to the Attorney General, and the Attorney General shall forthwith bring an action in a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Alabama to permanently enjoin the commission of such acts by the title insurer. If the title insurer violates any of the provisions of such an injunction, the Attorney General shall forthwith bring an action in such a court to revoke the corporate charter of the title insurer, if a domestic entity, or the license to conduct business in this state of the title insurer, if a foreign or alien entity.
