45-253. Civil remedies to enforce act; consent order. (a) In lieu of bringing an action as provided in K.S.A. 45-222, and amendments thereto, the attorney general or a county or district attorney may resolve the matter by accepting a consent judgment with respect to any act or practice declared to be a violation of this act. Before any consent judgment entered into pursuant to this section shall be effective, such judgment must be approved by the district court and an entry made thereof in the manner required for making an entry of judgment. Once such approval is received, any breach of the conditions of the consent judgment shall be treated as a violation of a court order, and shall be subject to all the penalties provided by law therefor.

(b) A consent judgment may contain any remedy available to the district court, except it shall not include an award of reasonable expenses, investigation costs or attorney fees. A consent judgment may include a stipulation concerning the production of records requested pursuant to K.S.A. 45-215 et seq., and amendments thereto, subject to any permissible redactions as described in the consent judgment.

(c) This section shall be a part of and supplemental to the open records act.
