You may have an action against the school for negligence, but if it was a public school you had 90 days from the date the school first told your prospective employer you had no diploma to serve a notice of claim on the school district. If this happened more than 90 days ago and no notice of claim was served on the school district, the case is barred by the statute of limitations.
