I am a gay man and have been spyed on by my neighbors for nearly 2 years since I moved into my house. I have no hard evidence of such other than hearing them outside my window and overhearing their conversations, but they seem to know things about me and know my every move within my house. I have blocked visibility in my house (there's no way they can see in my bedroom or bathroom), yet they continue to make comments to eachother about what I'm specifically doing at any given moment which leads me to suspect I am being video survellanced (I leave my house for days at a time and susupect they have broken in and placed surveillance equipment in my house). I know this is illegal (assuming they have done so). My question is, what limitations are there in counter surveillance? I don't want to break the law in trying to catch them at their own game. I intend to purchase equipment to test if my house has been "bugged" and also my own surveillance equipment to monitor my house and property. Is there any laws (California) limiting me in this activity? I intend to prosecute them if I uncover ANYTHING which I can prove they are involved in against me. I also want to record the conversations and verbal harrassment they spew at me. I have to wear earplugs in my own home just to ignore their verbal assaults and am now going to the bathroom with a blanket covering me just to assure a little privacy!! Do I have any recourse here?
