Wow, tenant--you really need a lawyer for this lawsuit.
The Court can take "Judicial Notice" of the former eviction--that means the Court can look at its own files to see that the eviction was filed, or what happened in the eviction action.
Watch those notices of violations--they are NOT admissible unless they are certified (or unless the landlord admits he received them).
You probably would not be able to submit the entire case file as evidence, since much of it would probably constitute hearsay.
I suggest you subpoena the city building inspector to be a witness at trial.
