Sorry.  You're not going to win that argument.  I agree that it is an injury to you to wait longer for the decision you were seeking, but not every injury provides for recovery under the law. M. Scott Peck wrote "Life is difficult."  I would add, "Life is often unfair."  The law is very specific about what it can and will do, and it will not always "make someone pay" for a difficult or unfair situation. 

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ
