No. I don't see that there is a thing at all that he can do about the laptop. It was a gift and now he's angry and wants to take it back but when he made the gift the ownership of the laptop transferred from him to you. So he cannot take something that is yours.He is making empty threats as he knows full well that the police will not do a thing. As well, even if he were to sue you he would not win because this was a gift and he cannot revoke it.Does that help as a starting point?
