on a judgment may be brought within ten years after the entry of a judgment
resulting in a renewal of the judgment for an additional ten years.” Id. (citing
Minn. Stat. § 541.04). “[A] party may bring an action to renew a judgment,
provided that: (1) the action is commenced within ten years after entry of the
original judgment; and, (2) the party complies with all requirements for
commencing a civil action.” Shamrock Dev., Inc. v. Smith, 737 N.W.2d 372, 376
(Minn. Ct. App. 2007), rev’d on other grounds, 754 N.W.2d 377 (Minn. 2008); see
also In re Dahl, Civil No. 09–1255 (DWF), 2009 WL 3164756, at *2 (D. Minn. Sept.

June 23, 2004. The motion to renew judgment was filed on March 13, 2014,
within the ten-year requirement. Additionally, the parties stipulated that this
Court enjoys subject matter jurisdiction and personal jurisdiction over all parties
in this matter. (See Stip. for Order of J.) The Rybergs acknowledge that they
have not yet fully satisfied their outstanding balance of $873,373.57 to Flint Hills,
and agree to the renewal sought by Flint Hills. (Id.) Finally, Movant properly
served Respondents with a Motion for Renewed Judgment along with
supporting documents on April 11, 2014. [Docket Nos. 9,10]
