Student convinces landlord not to proceed with eviction

This is an eviction from federally subsidized housing of single client with a young child.  The client works at a low-wage job.  The basis for the eviction is the arrest on the premises of a former boyfriend for marijuana possession.  At the time of his arrest, the client had already discontinued the relationship and, in fact, had obtained a temporary protective order against him.  The student interviewed the client, obtained a copy of the protective order, and negotiated with the new owner of the apartment complex in an effort to convince the new owner not to proceed with filing an eviction. The student finished her work in the clinic, before final resolution of the case.  The client and her daughter remain in the apartment.
