    can I counter sue

    Hypothetical:

    A guy sues me for libel and loses.

    Can I countersue to recover the costs of my legal fees?

    What are potential grounds for a counter suit?

    I need to be careful. If I post too many details the person in question could cite this forum as another instance of libel. Not that I think the guy has any case but nonetheless, an attorney suggested that I keep quite.
