What can I do if threatened by my landlord? Posted on April 19, 2011

I received a judgment over 2 years ago in city small claims court due to my landlord unjustly not giving my security deposit back within 30 days. I sued my landlord and not the real estate company because i didn't know any better. Landlord did not show up in court and I received the judgment in my favor for double my original deposit. Small claims put a lean on his building. Flash forward 2 years and the landlord is trying to sell the building and cannot without settling the judgment. He is now threatening to sue me for derogation on his personal credit profile and emotional hardship. My question is does he have any grounds to sue me because he didn't show up in court 2 years ago to defend the claims and has waited 2 years to take any action. Thanks!
