I was the Plaintiff in a self-filed lawsuit against a former employer and other Defendants (pro se, or in pro per in MI). I had 4 Counts. Their lawyer filed a Counter-Claim for Malicious Prosecution. I prevailed on Count I. I lost on Counts 2-4 as they were not well-pled and as a result I had to pay the other sides' attorney fees. I also prevailed against their Counter-Claim. The 3 counts I lost on were over and done with within 60 days. The other count (which I won) and their Counter-Claim lasted almost 2 years. I received a settlement offer for $7,000 shortly after the 60 days which also stated the attorney's fees had by then amounted to almost $3,000. I figured the 3 counts I lost on were $1,200 - $1,500 of that $3,000 figure. I declined his offer. At the end, he submitted a statement for his costs that had me paying him $6,300. I objected in Court but couldn't find his original letter with the settlement offer figures. The judge gave him what he wanted without any documentation or proof of his figures whatsoever. So I paid the $6,300 to the Court Clerk. I then found the missing letter 4 months later (before finishing mediation on their surviving Counter-Claim) and filed a motion for reconsideration, which was thrown out by the judge evidently because I had waited too long to raise the issue. I prevailed in the mediation and their Counter-Claim was dismissed and then the lawsuit was over. My question: Can I now sue this attorney for fraud? The statute of limitations in MI is 6 years for fraud. It's only been about 2 years since his award by the judge.
