Best Answer

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.

No. It is not.
