You could advise the ex-employer that you will counter sue for fraud if it decides to file a lawsuit against you. At this time, I would consider the threat to file suit just as a threat and there is nothing you can do to prevent a lawsuit from being filed other than advising the other side of your intention to counter sue and the consequences of the ex-employers actions.

I would simply wait and see what happens to see if in fact the employer file suit. Then consider filing a counter suit.

I hope that helped. Please ask any follow-up questions. Please rate my answer so that I may be credited for my time. I thank you in advance for your cooperation.
