Thank you for using Just Answer.

Because you had a signed agreement between you and the company, you arguably would have a civil claim for damages due to breach of the contractual agreement, and detrimental reliance (that is, you relied on the agreement that they would promote you when you turned down your other offer, to your detriment). However, there is one big potential issue I foresee. Under Florida law, the statute of limitations, or time limit, to file a lawsuit on a written contract, is 5 years. If this agreement was from 2006, then the time to file has long run out, and you would regrettably be barred from filing suit.

If you need clarification or additional information, please REPLY and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thank you.
