I’ve been denied a claims adjuster license due to a felony back in 2005. Can I fight this?

My application for an adjusters license was denied
due to a securities fraud felony back in 2005. I’ve
haven’t gotten into any trouble since I’ve been
released. My felony is on the permanent barred list.
Is it worth trying to fight this, the possible job that
depends on how his is real good. I have 21 days to
respond.

Securities fraud will permanently bar you from many jobs, such as being a claims adjuster, working in the securities industry, or many (possibly most or all) bank jobs--basically, from any job where financial trusthworthiness is an issue. Since there is no inherent "right" to any of those jobs (i.e. you don't have a strong, legally recognized interest in having the job), and since the policy against hiring people with certain crimes in their background is very strong and also in the pubic interest (to protect the public and the integrity of the industry), it is most likely impossible to successfully fight this: highly regulated industries have a great deal of power to deny applicants whom they believe pose a threat.
