Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
IF he was dismissed from the suit, then he can ask for fees. Fees in a case like that would depend on whether or not the court finds the suit was frivolous or without legal merit and dismissing someone from an action is a good indication that there was no merit to the case against them, so they could seek fees for the time they spent having to defend against the case to get it dismissed.
