The California Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case of Villanueva v. Fidelity National Title Co., involving whether the Department of Insurance has exclusive jurisdiction over rates and fees charged by title companies. The CLTA Litigation Committee voted unanimously to file a brief in the case. The Supreme Court limited the issues on appeal to two: (1) Whether California law provides immunity to a UTC for charging customers for services for which there have been no rate filings and (2) whether the Insurance Commissioner has exclusive jurisdiction over any action against a UTC for services charged to the consumers, but not disclosed to the Department of Insurance. The CLTA believes that the Court of Appeal was correct and its decision should be upheld by the Supreme Court.
