It's true that judgment and judgement are both in the dictionary, but the one
without the "e" is preferred -- at least by Webster. It's a good idea for house
style guides to specify how to treat such words to prevent inconsistency. And
it keeps mere programmers from questioning writers' intelligence, however
subtly! : )
