No way to tell based on the information provided. All the police needed was probable cause to make the arrest. This is not a terribly high standard. That the grand jury declined to indict does not mean that the arrest was unlawful. Your husband may wish to consult a civil litigation attorney for a review of all the facts to see if there is any recourse for him.

Felony charges in texas can be brought up again at any time before the statute of limitations has run. Depending upon what the charge is/was, that could be anywhere from 3 years to forever.

Anyone can sue anyone else for anything. That you had "proof" that he didn't do X doesn't mean they didn't have probable cause to arrest him. This is something your husband would discuss with his attorney.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
