Asked in Civil Litigation for Missouri

Q: Can the judge rule against the satisfaction of judgement?

I live in Missouri and before I pay the money I owe State Farm I want to be sure that they (or the judge) cannot either not turn it into the judge or the judge rule against it being satisfactory

A: Any judge can rule against a motion but if you’ve satisfied the judgment and the plaintiff refuses to file a satisfaction then you are entitled to have it satisfied. So long as you can provide that you’ve paid it in full, including post-judgment interest and costs, I see no reason that you motion to satisfy the judgment would be denied. If there is something unusual with your situation then hire an attorney.
