What is my liability regarding my LLC if it has never conducted business?

Question Details: A year ago, I resigned from mine and my partner's LLC because he breached his fiduciary duties. I hired a lawyer who sent him a mutual release agreement which he never signed or returned. He recently reached out to me via text message saying that he signed the agreement and that he wants me to remove myself from the company or he will sue me. According to the state's comptroller's office, the company status has been forfeited the right to transact business because the annual franchise tax statement was not submitted. The company has never transacted any business to date so it is a LLC in name only. Is my ex business partner's threat something I should be worried about?
