Can they sue you? Of course, anyone can sue anyone for anything. Will they win? Probably not, but without knowing whether you walked off with proprietary information about their customers; what kind of business it is, etc. one can't say for sure. As the other responder has said, you need to talk with a lawyer about the specifics of your situation. That's the problem, of course, because talking with a lawyer will cost you money and the former employer is hoping that their huffing and puffing will scare you into backing off. Maybe your company will help provide you with a lawyer.
