Hello. I'll be happy to assist you.
To answer your question directly, yes he can sue you, but it sounds like he will have problems proving his case. Since he would be the plaintiff, he has the burden of proof, so he'd be responsible for getting some evidence that it was your dog that bit his daughter. That would likely be done by either eyewitnesses (most likely) or bite analysis where someone compares the bite marks to the teeth in your dog's mouth. So, to answer your question if he CAN bring suit - yes, anyone has the right to bring a lawsuit. The real question here seems to be can he win. Based on what you've said, that would be very difficult unless he comes into court and lies.
I hope that answers your question. If not, feel free to ask follow up questions. If so, please remember to "Rate" my answer before you go. Good luck.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
