Assuming your derogatory is a collection and not a Public Record, if its truly invalid, paid, or past statute of limitation, just dispute it directly with the 3 credit bureaus using their dispute process web pages.  You should be able to get it off of there relatively easily.  I personally used the "I don't recognize this collection" option when this happened in the past for some items from 2008.

If it is a public record, you can still possibly dispute it, however at that point it just becomes a matter of timing with the courts.  I had a court ruling where i was sued a tiny amount by an individual. I had paid it, and disputed it online about a year later. It disappeared from 2 of the 3 reports. Its just luck at that point.
