Legal Question in Civil Rights Law in Ohio

Can my ex husband sue me for slander if I told an on duty officer that he had just moved to his new residence after being evicted from his old residence? There in no falsity to the eviction. It is public record on the county's website of legal cases and judgements. He says he has consulted a paralegal and an attorney and will sue me for slander. Statement was not false and was made to a privileged class of persons.
