Hello Michael and thank you for using the Just Answer website. I look forward to assisting you. If you owe rent and have not paid and an eviction has been started, you are still liable for the back rent. In other words, yes, the landlord can still take you to court and can still put your debt on your credit report if you have not paid what you owe.

Please let me know if this has answered your question and let me know how else I can assist you, if you still need more information.
