former landlord suing for damages, can they do this?

By

My former landlord is suing me for $9000 damages in my old townhouse.  I moved out of the townhouse 3 years ago when I broke up with boyfriend.  He continued to live in it for the last 3 years.  He missed a rent payment 2 months ago and split.  He supposedly caused $9000 damage to townhouse.  The owner is suing me for the damage.  Can they do this?  Thanks.
