(a) It shall be a violation of this chapter for a party to engage in frivolous conduct. Frivolous conduct shall mean conduct that serves to harass or maliciously injure another party, such as, but not limited to, filing a false or misleading claim or defense; or filing a complaint or asserting a defense that is not warranted under existing law and that cannot be supported by a good faith argument for an extension, modification, or reversal of existing law.
(b) Upon a finding by the city manager, hearing officer, Board of Commissioners or court of law that frivolous conduct has occurred, the city manager, hearing officer, Board of Commissioners or court of law may award reasonable attorney's fees and costs to the City of Danville and the non-violating party against the party who engaged in such frivolous conduct.
