§750.1. Personal liability of the clerk, his deputies and employees
A. The clerk of court is not personally liable for any damage or loss arising out of the performance of the duties imposed upon him in any capacity or for any reason unless the damage or loss is caused by his willful, wanton, or intentional act designed to cause injury. Neither is the clerk personally liable for the actions or negligence of any deputy or employee appointed or employed by him in the performance of any duty or obligation imposed upon the clerk in any capacity.
B. No deputy or other employee of the clerk of court employed or appointed for the performance of any duty or obligation imposed upon the clerk by law as clerk of the court, ex officio recorder of mortgages and conveyances, or in any other capacity is liable for any damage or loss arising out of or related to the performance of his duties unless the damage or loss is caused by his willful, wanton, or intentional act designed to cause injury.
C. Neither the clerk in his official capacity nor any of the deputies or employees are liable for improperly filing, failing or refusing to file, erroneously issuing or failing to issue or canceling any instrument from the records of his office or in taking any other action with respect to his records, their indexes or other performance of his duties when:
(1) The clerk has been directed to do so by order of any court of the state or United States or by any sheriff, marshal, or other officer pursuant to execution of a writ issued by such a court or when an officer is otherwise acting or purporting to act in his official capacity.
(2) Acting as ex officio recorder of mortgages or conveyances, he cancels and erases from his records or takes any other action with respect to any instrument in response to a request to do so when he is presented with the evidence or documents prescribed by law authorizing the same, whether or not such requests or records are genuine or what they purport to be.
