Q: Neighbors harass me with spotlights. Filed stalking n lost. Drive around my property. What does that fall under ?

They ran a pipe underground to my property for their gutter runoff. They had a washout. He sent emojis via text of love you n miss you. They trespass. Last night I sat in my living room to fold clothes and he was on his cart staring at me for 3 minutes. My car was recently shot at in my windshield. I’m afraid of them and their dogs that bite yet they still let them out ignoring animal control. They leave their property to take pictures of me and my house. She has ran all tag numbers per code enforcement. I believe they are encroaching on my property with new fence. They did this to the other neighbor and caused title issues. A surveyor said he will not come back here for the safety of his crew. I want an injunction. I’m afraid they will kill my dog. Their dogs bite. Animal control has been called but they still let them out. I had a video of it last week from cameras and they were given another warning. They ride around my house with the dog. She was fired as lead Code Enforcer

A: Some of the ongoing acts you're complaining about fall under the law of nuisance (which is court case-made law, which we lawyers call "common law", not in a statute). You may file a complaint to enjoin the nuisance and possibly seek money damages. A lawyer's cease & desist letter that threatens litigation might be appropriate. You need to schedule a consultation with a litigation lawyer in your area.
