A: If a lawsuit has been filed, then your question of whether the homeowner had grounds for suing is not important. If I were to say that the lawsuit is baseless (which I'm not saying) that would make no difference if a default judgment gets answered.

The better question concerns what your husband is going to do to defend the lawsuit. He ought to confer with an attorney.
