(1) The clerk of circuit court shall, upon the production of a duly certified transcript
of a judgment for more than $10, exclusive of costs, rendered by any municipal judge
in the county, enter the judgment in the judgment and lien docket of the court in
the manner prescribed in s. 806.10. When the transcript shows that execution was stayed in the municipal court, with
the name of the surety thereof, the clerk of circuit court shall enter the judgment
against the surety as well as the judgment debtor, and the surety shall be bound thereby
as a judgment debtor and the surety's property shall be subject to lien and be liable
on the lien to the same extent as the surety's principal.
(2) Every judgment entered in the judgment and lien docket under sub. (1), from the time of the filing of the transcript of the judgment, shall be considered
the judgment of the circuit court. The judgment shall be equally under the control of the circuit court and municipal
court. The judgment shall be carried into execution, both as to the principal judgment
debtor and the debtor's surety, if any, in the same manner and with like effect as
judgments of the circuit court, except that no action can be brought upon the judgment
as a judgment of the circuit court nor execution issued on that judgment after the
expiration of the period of the lien of the judgment on real estate provided by s. 806.15.
