i have contacted all the proper people that need to be involved in this matter and also have called the authorities on her 4 times within a 24 hour period.
Without further information it's hard to answer. Do you mean "she openly uses a video camera when we are both using our shared yard?" Or do you mean "she stands on a ladder outside my window and films the interior of my home?"
You may have a suit for invasion of privacy, or justification to file a harassment prevention order. But we don't know absent details.
Do you want accurate, personalized, legal advice that you can rely on? You will have to hire an attorney, not ask on Avvo. I am not your attorney and am not creating an attorney-client relationship by this post. I am therefore giving only general advice. This advice may not apply to you or your situation; may not take account of all possibilities, and may not match the advice I would give to a client. DO NOT rely on this advice or any other advice on Avvo to make your legal decisions. If you want an answer to a legal question you should retain an attorney who is licensed in your state.
You do not need physical evidence to obtain a 258E harassment prevention order from the court, so that is an option for you. However, if you want more proof, you can hire a private detective. You can also complain to your landlord about this invasion of your privacy and of the quiet enjoyment of your apartment. Good luck!
