If a holdover proceeding was settled would it show on credit report?

Asked about 2 years ago - New York, NY

If my landlord sues to evict me and a settlement was reached to vacate the apartment in 60 days, would this show up on my credit report? Or only judgements by the housing court would show up?

Additional information

Our lease ended; the holdover proceeding is not due to nonpayment.
