Individuals cannot "put" something on someone else's credit report. Judgments are part of the public record, and as such, are the subject of routine searches by individuals who re-sell this type of information to Credit Reporting Agencies. So, if you were the prevailing party in a judgment, you can be relatively certain the judgment will find it's way onto the defendants credit. In most states, a judgment must be recorded twice to ensure that it attachs to any real property owned by the defendant.

How do you get creditor to correct wrong information on your credit report?

This hapenned to me in the past. I was registered with experian, I had no defaults on my credit report, however a loan company told me that I had a default on my credit report I then told them that I had checked my experian credit report and it was clean but they told me it was equifax where the bad report was logged on. I checked it and it was for a credit card I had never even heard of. Equifax investigated it and found out in a couple of days that I had nothing to do with it. This was in 2007 about when it was removed. its now 2011 I also found out recently that you can actually sue companies that put false information on your credit report.
