The name of the attorney or firm of attorneys and post office addresses of the parties may be subsequently inserted by the clerk at any time.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the failure to list a social security number on a judgment shall not invalidate said judgment nor shall it make the party failing to list said judgment liable for such failure to list or the recording official liable for such failure.

(2) Any attorney of record representing a plaintiff or plaintiffs in the case may, for and on behalf of his client or clients, satisfy in whole or in part a judgment on such Judgment Roll by endorsing thereon the extent of such satisfaction and signing an entry so showing, and when so satisfied the clerk shall attest and subscribe such endorsement under the proper heading therein. When any judgment shall otherwise be satisfied, the clerk shall so enter under proper heading and subscribe the entry.

(3) The Judgment Roll may be kept on computer as provided in Section 9-7-171. In such case the plaintiff or attorney representing such plaintiff shall present to the clerk a sworn affidavit directing the clerk to cancel or otherwise show as satisfied the judgment recorded under this section.
