It usually takes 10 years for a judgement to fall off a credit report once it is satisfied (paid or settled).  Since a judgement is a court action, it is unlikely to be removed until then and it can be renewed at creditor's discretion, though this seldom happens.

Dispute It

If the judgement does not have a status or amount owed, dispute it. Some court clerks will not verify a judgement or status (because they are too busy processing paperwork) and if they do not answer the dispute within 30 days, then it gets deleted. The worse thing that can happen is the status stays the same.

- Good Luck and give it a try
