Rule 58B. Satisfaction of judgment.

(a) Satisfaction by acknowledgment. A judgment may be satisfied by the owner or the owner’s attorney by filing an acknowledgment of satisfaction in the court in which the judgment was first entered after payment of the judgment. If the owner is not the original judgment creditor, the owner or owner’s attorney shall also file proof of ownership. If the satisfaction is for part of the judgment or for fewer than all of the judgment debtors, it shall 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, shall discharge the judgment, and the judgment shall cease 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 shall include the partial satisfaction and shall 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.
