Hello. I am going to be assisting you with your question today.

I am familiar. What is your question?
So what is the question?
Yes because the bankruptcy is filed in federal court and the action in federal court automatically stays any pending state actions since the federal courts are superior to state courts.
I hope I have answered your questions. If I have not, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions you may have. Also, please do not forget to rate my response at your earliest convenience.
Wait it out until the federal court dismisses the action.
File as a creditor in the bankruptcy to protect the amount owed to you if it is a legitimate bankruptcy. If not, it will be dismissed and the eviction will continue to move forward.

It will show up on the state court docket. It depends on how far the person that filed the bankruptcy pursues the matter.
If it's not a legitimate bankruptcy (which by the facts you are stating, it doesn't seem likely that it is), it should get dismissed in 45 days after filing. You need to complete the eviction during that time.
