I am glad you have protection in the sense of him going to jail. Really sucks that over is not quite over.
And wow, what a winning family. I am toying around with what I want to do when I retire in about 7 years. Not sure I have the guts to move, but sucks to think you might find a great spot and then have to deal with stuff like this.
I'm with you though, you have to stand up to the bullies. Just be careful. When we had dog neighbor wars here, I really worried about my dogs. But we were all fine and luckily they eventually moved. Sure wish yours would move too!
