Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
The way this normally works is you have to get a surveyor out to see whose land the fence is on and that determines whose fence it is. If it is yours, you can sue him for removing the soil to make it fall over. It it is his, then he can do whatever he wants with it. If it is exactly on the property line, then it is a shared fence and if it needs to be replaced, both neighbors share the cost. If one won't, the other can sue them for half the cost under CA Civil Code 841.
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time.
