He can file a lawsuit.

You will have to answer it and show that there is already a lawsuit pending regarding the same parties on the same subject matter.

Unfortunately, this does happen. The other state does not know that your lawsuit already exists.

Look on this website and/or on www.avvo.com to hire an attorney in the other state.
