You are certainly well within your right to sue your neighbor to have the stone wall removed. However, prior to that, I would write a letter to him demanding that the wall that is on your property be removed within 14 days. After that 14 day. Then you can look to filing in court. I would also contact your Township zoning or code enforcement officer to have them review the wall and they may be able to get involved. I am sure that they did this without having the necessary permits which will get them in trouble with the Township. Building a fence along the property line would require a permit including plans etc. By where he placed the fence, I am going to assume that he did not have the proper permits and the Township can also force them to remove the fence since it was placed in violation to local ordinance.
