A complainant may intervene as a matter of right in a civil action without permission of the court or the parties. If the Attorney General or commission legal counsel, as the case may be, determines that the interests of the state will not be adversely affected, the complainant or attorney for the complainant shall present all or part of the case in support of the complaint. If the Attorney General or a commission legal counsel determines that a material mistake of law or fact has been made in the finding of reasonable cause, the Attorney General or a commission legal counsel may decline to bring a civil action and shall remand the file to the investigator for further action. The investigator shall complete any such action not later than ninety days after receipt of such file.

[(f)] (h) If the investigator issues a finding of no reasonable cause or if the complaint is dismissed pursuant to subsection [(d)] (m) of this section, the complainant may file a written request for reconsideration with the executive director or the executive director's designee, not later than fifteen days from the sending of such finding or dismissal.

[(g)] (i) After finding that there is reasonable cause to believe that a discriminatory practice has been or is being committed as alleged in the complaint, an investigator shall attempt to eliminate the practice complained of by conference, conciliation and persuasion [within] not later than fifty days after the date of the finding. The refusal to accept a settlement shall not be grounds for dismissal of any complaint.

[(h)] (j) No commissioner or employee of the commission may disclose, except to the parties or their representatives, what has occurred in the course of [such endeavors] the commission's processing of a complaint, provided the commission may publish the facts in the case and any complaint [which] that has been dismissed and the terms of conciliation when a complaint has been adjusted. Each party and his or her representative shall have the right to inspect and copy documents, statements of witnesses and other evidence pertaining to the complaint, except as otherwise provided by federal law or the general statutes.

[(i)] (k) In the investigation of any complaint filed pursuant to this chapter, [the] commission legal counsel may issue subpoenas requiring the production of records and other documents or compelling the attendance of witnesses. Commission legal counsel may recommend that the commission reopen, in accordance with section 46a-94a, as amended by this act, any matter previously closed pursuant to this section.

[(j)] (l) The executive director or the executive director's designee may enter an order of default against a respondent who (1) after notice, fails to answer a complaint in accordance with subsection (a) of this section or within such extension of time as may have been granted; (2) fails to answer interrogatories issued pursuant to subdivision (11) of section 46a-54 or fails to respond to a subpoena issued pursuant to subsection [(i)] (k) of this section or subdivision (9) of section 46a-54, provided the executive director or the executive director's designee shall consider any timely filed objection; (3) after notice and without good cause, fails to attend a fact-finding conference; or (4) after notice and without good cause, fails to attend a mandatory mediation conference.
