If a judgment is vacated it means that it is no longer valid. If the judgment was issued several months before it was vacated, then it may still show up in the public records until the public records are updated and show that the judgment is now vacated. However, if there is ever an issue, you can use the order vacating the judgment as proof that the original judgment is no longer valid. Depending who, when, how, and in what context the judgment was vacated, the statute of limitations may or may not have any bearing on the case. Need more information on this front to answer.
