Probably not unless the lease itself conditions obligation to pay rent on your ability to get Section 8 assistance. Being a Section 8 tenant doesn't obviate your obligation to pay rent if you choose to continue your tenancy at the premises. Even if it does, it might give you the right to quit the tenancy early but if you want to continue to stay there you have to find a way to come up with the rent. Though there is a separate contract entered into between your landlord and the housing agency, it obligates the housing agency to pay rent to the landlord as long as you continue to live there and qualify for Section 8 agency. It is doubtful there is any language in any of the contracts mentioned that would allow you to continue to stay there while the court is reviewing the adverse decision by the housing agency.
