If the judgment was included in the bankruptcy--many are not--then you take the relevant papers showing that it was paid to the court that issued the judgment. If they consider it paid, then they will issue a receipt to you. Send copies to the credit scoring companies and keep one in your permanent file.

How do you remove a judgment that was included in a discharged bankruptcy?

The question is what kind of judgment. If it is a judgment lien on property you would have to specficially have the Court void the lien. Mere discharge does not eliminate a valid lien. If you didn't own real property at the time of bankruptcy, generally, a judgment lien cannot attach post-filing. There is no need to eliminate this lien because it is void.
