go to the tenant.net home page, almost every law related to renting apartments is covered somewhere. do a search for security deposits or something like that.
i think i saw something recently about this, and it said that the deposit was only to be used for repairs above and beyond the normal expectation of wear and tear. so unless the walls were considerably messed up, you may have a case. unfortunately a lot of these laws seem kind of vague so it tends to come down to a your-word-against-their's situation.
