Issue with Judgement. Can this be removed based on discrepancy?
Here's a chronological timeline:

2010- Judgement entered on credit report.
2010- Creditor received payment in full by payroll deduction.
2015- Found open judgement while getting mortgage.
2015- Contacted creditor. Acknowledged not reporting as PAID in 2010. "This one just fell through the cracks I guess." Sent me a copy of satisfaction document dated 12/29/2015. Filed with county. Now shows satisfied.

Wondering if I can have this judgement removed based on the discrepancy of dates? They took payment in full 5 years before reporting satisfied and my insurance rates, approvals, etc. have all been negatively impacted because of their failure to do so.

I talked to a lawyer and he said he thinks there's absolutely a case for damages here, but can I request that it be vacated?
