court judgement doesn't show on credit report?

Hi all I am new but delighted to be here. I live in California and 10 months ago I was sued by a debt collector for a credit card debt and the judge awarded the judgement to the plaintiff. Now I'm just curious why the judgement haven't show up on my credit report as public yet. I haven't paid the judgement, but if I do will it then appear on my report. Sorry this is just confusing to me but if someone can help explain I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Re: court judgement doesn't show on credit report?

If you have checked all three reports, and the judgement is not showing, it could be a case of the court reporting it incorrectly. Meaning they may have reported it as someone else's judgement in error.

There is also the possibility that it was not recorded properly, therefore it is not visible to the bureaus. Hard to say for certain.
