(a) A local human relations commission authorized by ordinance to award compensatory damages in the Kansas act against discrimination, in a discrimination case may secure enforcement of any final order of such commission, or where authorized by ordinance, the commission's director may secure enforcement of any final order of such commission, in accordance with the Kansas judicial review act in amounts not to exceed any limitations prescribed in the Kansas act against discrimination. 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 No order of the commission or director shall be superseded or stayed during the proceeding on review unless the district court so directs.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.
(2) The commission's or director's copy of the testimony shall be available at all reasonable times to all parties for examination without cost, and for the purpose of judicial review of the order. The review shall be heard on the record without requirement of printing.
