Unless you are alleging that the company is singling you out because of your gender, race, religion, age, sexual orientation, or a similarly prohibited basis, you would not have any legal basis to win a lawsuit against the company. Their is no law that would require the company to hire you.
More information about unlawful discrimination is at www.hum.wa.gov .
The default employment relationship in WA is at will. That is, either the employer or employee can end the employment relationship at any time for any reason with or without notice. The same principle applies to before being hire.
Does the company prohibit you from simply re-applying? If there is no such prohibiting, it may be simpler to re-apply and do the things earlier this time around.
I doubt you have a claim, unless you have been let go due to one of the prohibited discriminatory reasons, like race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. Your best bet is to try to work this out or ask if you could talk to management and try to get them to reconsider. If not, I don't see a case.
Just as they could not have sued you if you decided not to take the job, you generally cannot sue them for not hiring you.
