From what you've stated you have a solid case they committed a misrepresentation of your character to this employer, which resulted in your non-hire, and you would have claims for the following: defamation per se, tortious interference with business relations, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. You'd have to be able to allege and prove that they intentionally misrepresented facts to the employer, with the intention to defame your character and cause interference with your employment, and that it caused you financial and emotional distress as a result. You would be owed lost wages and emotional damages as a result.
