Unfortunately, your Rhode Island lawyer is probably correct in that there is little you can do at this point. Any assets you lost, were lost through the judicial process so this was all done legally and properly. The only way you would have some type of case against him were if you had concrete proof that he was using the system to harass you/intimidate you. But this will be very difficult to prove because his defense will be that he was simply seeking his rights in court and if he was successful in court that makes it harder to prove he was abusing the system.
Assuming you could prove this, you would then also need to prove that his actions caused, or led to, your health issues. And this would require medical documentation.
This will be a costly proposition, so be careful. Perhaps you could start by consulting a personal injury attorney. They will often take cases on a contingency fee basis whereby they are only paid if you are successful. Of course, they will only take a case on contingency if they feel the case is strong. Give this a shot and if no one will take it, then I think you need to let this go.
