Unless there was some provisions in the contract that required you to close for any reason then no they can not do that (they will of course threaten to sue to bully you). To stop them just call the Florida Department of Real Estate and report this company and their actions since what they are doing or have threatened to do violates the RE laws in Florida. Good luck and I hope you can come through with your new buyer.
