Any person who violates any provision of the compact or of sectionor shall forfeit and pay to the state a penalty, in an amount to be determined by the court, of not more than $10,000 per day of violation. The civil penalties provided in this subdivision may be recovered by a civil action brought by the attorney general in the name of the state.
Any violation of the provisions of the compact may be enjoined as provided by law in an action, in the name of the state, brought by the attorney general.
In any action to compel performance of an obligation created by the compact the court may require any person who is adjudged responsible to do and perform any and all acts and things within that person's power which are reasonably necessary to fulfill the obligation.
In any action brought by the attorney general, in the name of the state for civil penalties, injunctive relief, or in an action to compel compliance, if the state prevails and if the violation was willful, the state, in addition to other penalties provided in this section, may be allowed an amount determined by the court to be the reasonable value of all or a part of the litigation expenses incurred by the state. All amounts recovered by the state under the provisions of subdivisions 1 to 5 shall be deposited in the general fund.
Nothing in this section shall be construed to permit any action or remedy against the state for violation of any provision of the compact. The sole remedies for such a violation are those provided in the compact.
