I know I was follow by the FBI for a while since March. The reason that I discovered they set up their base of operation in the house right next to mine was through a friend, we have the same class together. Her friend, who lives next door to mine and let them use the house to set up their base of operation, told her about that. And during the court of their action, I can almost hear everything that they say clearly due to her house is so close to mine. I have a witness but I don't know the inspector's name. This has caused me a lot of mischief, knowing I am being watch all the time, to the point I tried to kill myself by OD on sleeping pill. Luckily, the doctors at the emergency room were able to save me after three days. My question is how can I sue the FBI agent? can I request information from their end as evidence against them in the court of law?
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): California
I haven't tried anything yet. Please advise me on the next step. Thank you
If you have evidence that you are the subject of surveillance, you can and you should call the local police and report it. Even if it is the FBI, the local police should investigate. Then, armed with the police report, you can file a claim in Federal Court against the US Department of Justice for Harassment and trespass.

I have little money. Should I hired a lawyer or some one who can aid me with the legal process?
You should first contact the police. After that, if you decide to file a lawsuit, you should retain an attorney. there are many attorneys who take lawsuits on contingency, which means you pay their fee only after they resolve the case.
I just moved to South Carolina to avoid this emotional distress. but I know they are still watching me. My witness is living in California. Should I fly back?
First gather evidence and call the police. The police should investigate the house next door. If you file a lawsuit, then you can have your witness flown in.
