Legally, a judgment of possession deprives the tenant of the right to possession. This means that the bankruptcy stay theoretically has no effect. However, a contrary argument can be made that the act of the sheriff in commencing the eviction, is a "collection" action, prohibited under the bankruptcy stay.
The result of this conflict is that sheriff departments tend to make their own rules on whether or not they will evict, at a particular point in a bankruptcy. So, the only
way you can know whether or not you are wasting your time by filing another bankruptcy, is to contact your local sheriff's civil division and ask.
Otherwise, you could get an unpleasant suprise.
Hope this helps.
