Short answer: You appear to be in breach of your lease, and also failed to provide proper notice that you were abandoning the premises.
So, likely you will lose the breach of lease case.
Retain an attorney to help you prepare a harassment case against the landlord, which may help induce the landlord to forgive the breach of lease.
Your lease will always provide the terms of your tenancy, especially notice to vacate. Often 30 to 60 days notice before vacating is required and if you did not provide this or the reasons in which you expedited your departure, they would have grounds that you violated the lease agreement. I would reach out to the landlord to see if there are some terms you can come to agreement on before making it to court.
check the terms of your lease agreement, but most standard leases require 60 days notice to leave even if you become a month to month tenant.
