In any case wherein the licensee fails or refuses to make payment to the consumer of a penalty within the time required, the consumer may institute legal action against the licensee for the recovery of such penalty as provided in Section 2-22-12. Any judgment against the licensee shall be double the amount of the penalty and shall include a reasonable attorney's fee and court costs. In cases where the licensee is required to pay the amount of any penalty to the commissioner for deposit to the credit of the Agricultural Fund and the licensee fails or refuses to make such payment within the time required, the commissioner may institute legal action in a court of competent jurisdiction for collection of the amount of the penalty upon 10 days' notice to the licensee following the 60-day payment period.
