Can a landlord terminate a lease if the court dismisses all late fees in a forcible detainer case

Question Details: If the court determines the tenant has a valid defense and dismisses all the late fees, then why is the landlord allowed to terminate the tenant lease and add additional charges? It doesn't seem fair ? A landlord can file a five day notice for nonpayment if the tenant doesn't pay what ever the landlord claims he owes And if the tenant pay the false charges before going to court the landlord dismisses the case. And if the court dismisses the false charges why would the tenan be guilty for nonpayment
