Yes, but if the judgment that was obtained against you is only for possession of the premises, then that is not a judgment for which you can get a satisfaction. If it was a money judgment, wherein it says that "if landlord is paid the use and occupancy, then tenant can stay for three more months, but if not paid, landlord shall gain possession" then that again is not a judgment for which you get a satisfaction. If the money judgment says: "tenant shall pay $3000 to landlord" then you should get a satisfcation should that have been paid.
