Q: My former neighbors tore up my fence before they moved. New neighbors were told I tore up the fence. Do I have a case?

You can tell it was broken from their side due to the spreading of dirt from an in ground pool being installed. Their yard is at least 6 inches taller than mine.

A: What is your economic harm, in this case? Did their claims cost you your job? Or, is it just the fence repair?

Sounds like fence repair, to me. Sue them in small claims court, for the fence costs. The judgement will prove who was telling the truth.
