The evidence presented to the commission or director, together with the commission's or director's findings and the order issued thereon, shall be certified by the commission or director to the district court as the commission's or director's return. No order of the commission or director shall be superseded or stayed during the proceeding on review unless the district court so directs.

The review shall be heard and determined by the court as expeditiously as possible. After hearing, the court may affirm the adjudication. If the adjudication by the commission or director is not affirmed, the court may set aside or modify the adjudication, in whole or in part, or may remand the proceedings to the commission or director for further disposition in accordance with the order of the court.

* The phrase "in the Kansas act against discrimination," apparently should have been deleted.
