We're being sued.

Oh and our good friend buys the one in the hometown behind our back! He still hasn't talked to us. Anyways so we go get the loan do all this stuff. In the meantime as soon as we decide DH goes over and tells him. Says you know for me and my family we want to stay in my hometown and this is the best decision. The guy is fine with it. The next day however his wife is in talking trash about my DH. Not to mention the old receptionist decides to work for us b/c she needs stability. So the old DR closes the other office. But through all that he sends a letter saying "Your contract is null and void on March 1" We didn't open till after that date. He wrote it because his deal with our ex-friend was suppose to go through that day but it didn't. Does that matter? Anyways the receptionist at his office (who wants to quit and work for us) is telling this to us.
Theres a clause in the contract that we won't open up in a certain distance and use his "Special techniques". But then we have the letter that it's null and void on March 1st. Are there any legal girls on here that can help me out. See this guy used to be nice till he married this word I won't use. As soon as she says something he does it. So I'm pretty sure its her idea. We just so don't need this now. I just quit my job for my mental health! And I can't believe our friend who my DH grew up with has just turned his back on us. He's been treating everyone like crap even his patients! What makes people do that! Anyways this is a total vent. I commend you if you even made it this far. We are just at a loss!

If you are being sued for a breach of contract but they sent out a letter saying the contract was void as of March 1 then I don't really see what grounds they have to sue you.

In your DH's contract does it say he cann't work within X amount of miles of the practice should he leave for a certain time? If it does then over here you can't but its arguable. Especially as he's just changed all the terms of the contract, rescinded it and was in effect going to pay off your DH anyway. I'd challenge it but yeah it is going to cost you $.
If his cow of a wife is behind it as soon as it starts costing her $ she is going to back down, Slander is also really expensive to sort out but I'd get a Solicitors letter threatening the counter sue. It shouldn't cost you much and it might just frighten them off.
As for your m8 i'd go and face him the spinless git, however on the upside if he's being horrible to his clients you are going to get them lol
