Waukesha, WI asked in Bankruptcy and Landlord - Tenant for Wisconsin

Q: Am I relieved from rent, considering that I haven't been living there since earlier this March due to covid-19?

Hi. So the apartment that I was living in filed for bankruptcy this past June. I have tried to pay rent but now I am wondering if I am relieved from that, considering that I haven't been living there since earlier this March due to the whole Covid-19 situation. If you could let me know I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

A: Probably since they are in bankruptcy, no one will pursue it although the bankruptcy trustee could pursue it if he so chose.
