I live in NJ, but when I asked my lawyer he didn't have any insight on it. Is there particular laws I can look to regaurding this? Or is this a case by case basis thing?
Your attorney of all people should know the answer to this question, and if he doesn't know he should find out for you.
I believe in PA I can't be kicked out of an existing lease but if there is language in the lease to not renew (which mine has) then the landlord can opt to not renew it. You'll just have to do some searching for NJ tenancy law with bankruptcy.
If your least must be renewed, then the landlord can typically choose not to renew for any reason, as long as it is not barred by law. While the fact that you filed bankruptcy may not be a valid reason, they can use the excuse of their loss you caused (at a different property they own) as a reason why they may not want to work with you in the future. I don't see this a complicated scenario -- an existing lease is a different question.
