  1. Answered . You can sue them for malicious prosecution as you had a favorable termination on the merits of your case and they apparently had no evidence to support their case. You can request payment for emotional distress and financial losses arising out of the lawsuit.

    If you hired an attorney for that suit you might also recover attorneys fees.
