The courts haven't updated the info to the credit bureaus.  Dispute the item to have it show paid.

OR, dispute it to have it deleted.  This will increase your scores.  Showing paid will still have it on your report impacting your scores.

If you need more help email me at jason@rapidrescorecredit.com.

It is likely showing the amount of the judgement.  A judgement is a legal action that will remain on your credit history for 7 years from the date it was "satisfied" (paid) because it IS a part of your credit history. This is going to affect your credit during those 7 years, but the impact will lessen the more your credit reports show responsibility with credit.
 

Please read the articles on this site (see left side of the page) and utilize the financial tools provided here so you can build and maintain a good credit score.  That is the purpose of this site because too many people do not understand credit.
