The suit may remain but if he can't prove his entire bill he can only POTENTIALLY recover for the charges he does present. It would be great for you as the defendant if you had notes of the alleged conversations or other activity claimed to contradict what he says he is owed. If you have no notes, go over his bill carefully and be prepared to testify that particular charges are padded and/or didn't happen. Ultimate action you can take is threaten to report him to the state bar...that often causes a guy like that to back down.
