I am sorry to hear about this situation, K. To sue in a state court, one needs to have a "cause of action." There are numerous causes of action, such as "breach of contract," "negligence," "fraud," "unjust enrichment," etc., as well as causes of action rooted in statutory law. Every state has their own although they are very similar to each other in every state because they all stem from the same common law. A pleading in Court needs at least one cause of action, although it is not unusual to have more than one.
Here, the neighbors may be liable for the following:
NEGLIGENCE PER SE - a violation of criminal laws, such as trespassing and assault and battery.
ASSAULT / BATTERY - Assault is threat of a bodily harm, and battery is actual physical impact.
NUISANCE - a violation of use and enjoyment of land by you, due to their actions. he phrase "use and enjoyment of land" is broad. It comprehends the pleasure, comfort and enjoyment that a person normally derives from the occupancy of land. Freedom from discomfort and annoyance while using land, which inevitably involves an element of personal tastes and sensibilities, is often as important to a person as freedom from physical interruption with use of the land itself. The discomfort and annoyance must, however, be significant and of a kind that would be suffered by a normal person in the community. See generally Restatement (Second) of Torts §§ 821D and 821F (1977), with comments.
However, your Association (or landlord?) does not have to help you with neighbor issues, I am afraid. Even if the neighbors are violating community rules, the Association or landlord has discretion whether to impose punishment or not. The final matter lies with civil court (see above). One can get an injunction, as well as punitive damages maybe.
Finally, if you have not called the police on the rock throwing and the assault/battery, consider doing so. The authorities may actually decide o criminally charge them, and one could still bring a civil lawsuit as well.
