I am getting sued for breach of contract by my previous employer. However, I quit working for him when I found out that the things he had us selling were unethical Satellite Dish accounts, and the contracts were being frauded by him after we turned them in. Is employer fraud (if I can bring in evidence to prove it) a good enough basis to breach my contract?

Also, When I started this job, my employer and I were on pretty good terms, and he told me to sign his name on one of my paychecks, so I could cash it. I was stupid and signed it. I didn't think anything of it, it was back in May, but now he's telling me (extorting me) that if I don't pay him $4500 for breaching my contract, he's going to have me thrown in jail for check fraud. I think he's doing this just because he knows he'll lose in court, so he wants some leaverage to have me settle out of court.

Do I have a good case to win the breach of contract suit?

Will the fact that he didn't report any kind of check fraud back in May help me prove that he told me to sign the check?

Thanks for the help!
