What is the name of your state? NY
A few weeks ago, I was mistakenly included in an ongoing dispute between my neighbor next door and my neighbor across the street. The dispute was regarding picking up dog feces. After several requests to pick up after her dog, my neighbor across the street proceeded to place the feces on my neighbor's doorstep. My neighbor, in retaliation, had her daughter fling the feces on the neighbor's stoop and smeared it on my doorknob as well as my landlord's as well as placing several droppings on our porch (these actions were witnessed). Because I didn't have an inkling this occurred, I touched the doorknob upon leaving my house. I called the police to file a report which I did, but the police claimed it was not a crime, but a violation, which must be witnessed by police officers in order to submit a fine.
I would like to file a case against this woman. I was told I could only do it in Supreme Court (no monetary minimum). However, I need to know what law (CLR # ???) I am filing under. Please advise.
