If the action provided for in section 5310.07 of the Revised Code is brought to recover for loss or damage, or for deprivation of land or of any interest therein which arises wholly through any actionable fraud, negligence, omission, mistake, or misfeasance of the county recorder or his deputies, or of any examiner of titles, in the performance of executive or ministerial duties, or of any of the assistants or clerks of the recorder, in the performance of their respective duties, the action shall be brought against the treasurer of state and such officers and the sureties on their bonds as are within the jurisdiction of the court of common pleas as defendants. If such action is brought to recover for loss or damage, or deprivation of land, or of any interest therein which arises wholly through any actionable fraud, negligence, omission, mistake, or misfeasance of some person other than the recorder or his deputies, or the other officers and their deputies or assistants named in this section, or which arises jointly through the actionable fraud, negligence, omission, mistake, or misfeasance of such other person and the recorder, deputy recorder, or other officers and assistants named in this section, such action shall be brought against both the treasurer of state and such officers and their sureties, and such other persons only, as are within the jurisdiction of the court.
