Since judgments are a public record, they are very difficult to get off.  You can try writing a letter to each of the bureaus asking that they verify the information.  No guarantee that it will work, but I have seen it happen.  If they write you back and state that it is verified and it still appearing on your report(s), you can try going to the creditor(s) that placed the judgment against you and ask them to remove it from the public record.  I've never tried that method, but it can't hurt.  Best of luck!

However, a judgement is a legal action that was taken and it just may have to remain on the records for seven years.  Please read the articles on this site so you can be better informed about how credit works and how you can improve yours.  That is what Credit Karma is all about.
