Get in with an attorney, tell them whats going on, and they can advise as to how seriously you need to take any threats he may be making.

Go see a local attorney, consult with him or her, and do not be shy about letting counsel be aware of any potential issues which might be raised in the litigation. Never underestimate an opponent. Obtain good counsel, and that's how you win. Be prepared. Good luck.
