What legal recourse does one have for being unjustly fired from a job?

Question Details:

The company that I worked was told by the estranged wife of a recently laid-off employee that he had made copies of company documents for his own personal use. As the manager of the site, the company then terminated my employment and that a others. They attempted to block the severance packages of several other former employees that had been laid-off weeks before. At the time of my termination I was given no reason for my dismissal. Upon filing for unemployment, the company tried to deny my benefits saying I had been fired. TX heard my case and found in my favor.
