I very much doubt you can sue the other party's lawyer for anything. He won case for his client, which is his job. He doesn't have a duty to you beyond his usual ethical responsibilities.
This is AVVO, a place for users to obtain general legal information to general legal questions. I am glad to help you in any way I can, within those limits. I wish to make clear I am only communicating with you for the sole purpose of exchanging such general information, and nothing more. It is not legal advice, which I can not provide because among other reasons I know few of the necessary details of your situation. I do not purport to represent you in any way, shape or form. Of course, if you would like to seek out my services, and if you are a NY resident, I will probably not put up very much resistance but representation would still necessitate a signed retainer agreement between yourself and I. Thank you.
No, but you can sue the party.

If I understand your question - You sued tenant for UD in small claims and prevailed. then tenant through his lawyer filed a malicious prosecution case against you in Superior Court.
Whatever happens in small claims is not res judicata (has no effect on) a Superior Court action. Superior Court goes by a different set of rules of evidence and procedure. Small Claims is the peoples court and is very lax on the rules.
