Sorry for the delayed post. It took me some time to pull the actual rule for you.
You would not be counter suing for harassment. You can file a responsive motion for sanctions and punitive damages for signing a pleading(complaint) that was not based on valid law or adequately grounded in fact. This motion is under Rule 2.114 of the Michigan Rules of Civil Procedure.Rule 2.114 requires anyone that files a complaint sign the complaint and verifying that it is based on current law or fact. If they do not have a valid legal argument for breach of contract then the verification is in violation of Rule 2.114. A judge that finds someone in violation of 2.114 can award attorney fees, costs and punitive damages to the harmed party.The rule can be found at this link: http://courts.mi.gov/Courts/MichiganSupremeCourt/CurrentCourtRules/1Chapter2CivilProcedure.pdf
