This is not legal advice by any means... but all domain name registrars give ample warning before selling an expired domain.
If this were me, I would either 1. Tell him to go jump 2. Sell him the domain back as suggested above.
Keep in mind that if you continue with the domain that some people can get nasty and hire people to DDOS attack the site out of spite. But it looks like he wants to go the lawyer route.
Do you have the finances to see a lawyer?
Are there lawyers where you live that will take the case on and offer you a No Win, No Fee setup if you go to mediation or court?
If this were me, I would fight it. It is his own stupid fault if he did not renew a domain after his registrar contacted him a few times to get him to renew it. I have a few registrars I use and they send me an email 1 mth before they expire, then 2 weeks before and also again at 1 week before.

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.
