    Past Tenses: after "had told"


    Which tense should I use after "had told"?

    I didn't go to that meeting because nobody had told me there [would be/was] one.

    Thank you.

    Re: Past Tenses: after "had told"

    Both are possible, IMO.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
