Rule 58B. Satisfaction of judgment.

(a) Satisfaction by acknowledgment. Within 28 days after full satisfaction of the judgment, the owner or the owner's attorney must file an acknowledgment of satisfaction in the court in which the judgment was entered. If the owner is not the original judgment creditor, the owner or owner’s attorney must also file proof of ownership. If the satisfaction is for part of the judgment or for fewer than all of the judgment debtors, it must state the amount paid or name the debtors who are released.

(b) Satisfaction by order of court. The court in which the judgment was first entered may, upon motion and satisfactory proof, enter an order declaring the judgment satisfied.

(c) Effect of satisfaction. Satisfaction of a judgment, whether by acknowledgement or order, discharges the judgment, and the judgment ceases to be a lien as to the debtors named and to the extent of the amount paid. A writ of execution or a writ of garnishment issued after partial satisfaction must include the partial satisfaction and must direct the officer to collect only the balance of the judgment, or to collect only from the judgment debtors remaining liable.

(d) Filing certificate of satisfaction in other counties. After satisfaction of a judgment, whether by acknowledgement or order, has been entered in the court in which the judgment was first entered, a certificate by the clerk showing the satisfaction may be filed with the clerk of the district court in any other county where the judgment has been entered.
