A: It would be difficult to impossible to tell you whether what he does is improper or not. One would probably need to see the camera in question and how it is "aimed." It could be that he is simply trying to keep his property safer. As to suing him, what are your damages? How have you been harmed? How much money have you lost as a result of this? Without damages, you have no case. That said, something is curious to me. If he is filming your property AND - IF nothing is happening on your land, why do you worry so much about the camera? Granted, I wouldn't like it either, but I would find some way to work it out with him unless he is clinically crazy. WHY would he want to damage or hurt you? All these questions need to be answered before anyone can tell you what to do in response. Remember, responding may make things worse.
