I was investigated for sexual harrassment from my
prior employer. They cuold not find concrete evidence
that it had occured. 1. it never happened. 2. It was
her word against mine. I was terminated for
''inappropiate'' behavior. My behavior was in no
different than any other manager in the building. I
have also found the the company didn't terminate other
managers that came up in the investigation. I also
found that they have rehired managers that were
terminated in the past for sexual harrassment. Do I
have grounds for leg

Yes, you may have a cause of action against your prior employer for retaliation for involvement in protected activity (your opposition to the sexual harassment complaint brought against you) under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or California's Fair Employment and Housing Act. I would need to know more about the case to be sure.
Also there may be an illegal reason behind your prior employer's different treatment of you compared to other managers.

Probably not. California is an act will implement stayed which means that unless you have a written contract for employment, you can be fired at any time for any reason.
