The court may award reasonable attorney fees, damages and all fees associated with the license application to a party that prevails in an action against the district for a violation of this section.

F. A district employee may not intentionally or knowingly violate this section. A violation of this section is cause for disciplinary action or dismissal pursuant to the district's adopted personnel policy.
