first of all, your neighbor needs bigger things to worry about if theyre going to go to the trouble to sue you, and second of all, i think your best option would be to set a boundary for your dog and when he/she "goes" where it is supposed to, reward it, and it will hopefully learn

If you train him not to it might work. Have you ever watched the dog whisperer? Be assertive and make an assertive sound if your' dog does it while you're watching him. Remember to reward him if he stops entering the yard for ten, then twenty seconds and on and on until you get to the point where the dog is no longer entering the yard. REWARD! And to all those people who are telling you to put a leash on it, I actually thought that the dog could dig under or go over the fence and that you could have a leash or a rope but it keeps chewing through it. Hope this helps!
Does your dog go loose around the neighborhood? If so you should probably keep him on a leash for the safety of him. Plus, your neighbor shouldn't be so harsh!! You should definitely always pick up the poop after he goes, though.
You need to train your dog where he should go. Put your dog on a leash when you are taking him outside to go to the bathroom and take him is a specific spot where you want him to go. Walk in small circles in that area until he goes and give him a treat. Do this every time he goes out the bathroom and that is the only place he will go.
