§ 36.20  REMEDIES FOR VIOLATION.
   (A)   Effect of violation. Any violation of §§ 36.18 and 36.19 of this code are deemed "malicious, wanton or willful" acts as those terms are defined under Conn. Gen. Stat. § 7-101a and the case law thereunder. Moreover, any violation of said provisions shall not be construed as "performance of his duties" and, thus, shall be deemed as beyond "the scope of his employment" and as a "willful or wanton act" of the employee as those terms are defined under Conn. Gen. Stat. § 7-465 and the case law thereunder.
   (B)   Claims by the city. The city shall commence legal actions against any department head, RMAS or official who violates the provisions of §§ 36.18 and 36.19 of this code in order to recover any losses or damages caused by the disclosure of confidential information or by the conflict of interest. The provisions of the indemnification laws of the state shall not act as a bar for any claims and actions commenced by the city against any department head, RMAS or official for violations of these provisions.
   (C)   Removal of department heads and other RMAS. The city may commence actions to remove any employee or official who violates the provisions of §§ 36.18 and 36.19, pursuant to the procedures set forth in § 7A-4 of the Charter of the city.
