What if the complaint cannot be resolved between the parties? Is there a penalty?

If there is reasonable cause to believe discrimination occurred and the complaint cannot be resolved, it may be referred to the City Prosecutor for review. The case may be heard in Municipal Court as a Class C misdemeanor, which carries a maximum $500 fine per violation (per City ordinance).
