Involved in a legal case over a retaining wall. Just

Involved in a legal case over a retaining wall. Just discovered a hidden camera placed on a tree at the border (could be on neighbors lot) facing the wall from above. This is a remote area and there are no homes near mine. No neighbors. Surrounded by forest. I looked at the camera (still photography) simm card and it had images of me behind my home. I suspect the defendant put it there. Is that legal? Nothing to hide but could he use the images in court? Will check with my attorney but curious now.
