Do I have the grounds to sue...?
There is a way to possibly have a lawsuit, but it would be a VERY weak case. This would be filing suit for breach of contract as a THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY. See HERE. Someone in your situation would have to prove however:
1) That you knew exactly what they promised to do
2) That you relied on it, and
3) That the company is making demands of you that are not requirements for beneficiaries listed in the contract when the company entered into this contract with the state.
Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved for experts who are rude or for erroneous information. Please rate me on the quality of my information; do not punish me for my honesty.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
