It seems to me that the purpose of court
judgement listing in credit reports is more
for bankruptcy which this is not.
You are seriously wrong on that count.
Can it be removed from my credit report on
the basis that it was immediately paid in
full and I have been "released and
discharged"? Can it be removed on the basis
that it was covered under insurance and I
actually did not have to pay anything?
It cannot be removed at all.
At best, it should be shown as a satisfied judgment.
