Q: I live in apartment complex and my neighbor across from me keeps recording everything I do and turns it in
She turns in who comes to my apartment who leaves if someone is smoking every little thing I do I don't bother her I stop any company after 10 pm
A: It's not a civil rights violation. If it's in public, it's not an invasion of privacy. It sounds like it's best to just ignore it.
A: This is tricky, its riding the line. It's not quite harassment under Code of Alabama §13A-11-8, because there is no contact or obscene gesture and it's not quite violating Ala. Code § 13A-11-30 about videotaping others because outside of your apartment you do not have a reasonable expectation of privacy. However, the apartment is most likely private property so your best bet is likely to have a discussion with the Landlord, if the landlord refuses to stop it, then I would suggest trying to ignore it and look for somewhere to move to where you can have more privacy.
