The judgment was entered in violation of the automatic stay which is part of bankruptcy. the judgment is void and need not be discharged as a judgment but the underlying debt is based on fraud and may be non-dischareable under bankruptcy law but that would require a challenge in bankruptcy court. You have no judgment but the debt can survive the bankruptcy but you will need a lawyer. The actions of the state court are useless.
You have described a classic pattern of abuse and violation of your rights under state and federal law. the answer to your question would be a book.

This said, there is a general lack of jury and judge sympathy that would devalue settlement or trial value. Basically you have a wrong without an express remedy and...
Each legal entity must have a discrete (separate) EIN. You may not transfer the old EINs. Each entity shold file final employment tax and income tax returns for the year of transfer to the LLCs. Each must be done separately. The key here is to use the term FINAL boldly on the old EINs.
The Court will enter a default judgment if you fail to answer and appear at trial. Your defenses are known only to you. You must demonstrate that the apartments were uninhabitable by reasonable standards by proof at trial. The proof must by credible and support your own point of view. Just saying it was full of drug dealers would need evidence such as arrest or incidence records from the local police department.
The matter seems to be a straightforward contract issue and on its face seems legal. The facts are sketchy so I would have to hedge until I had all the facts including your incorporation, the employee agreement and the charity and venue agreements.
