I don't think so, since the 1864 Merriam-Webster unabridged, of which I
happen to have a copy, gave JUDGMENT as the sole spelling.
The M-W II (1934) said "judgment, judgement."
The M-W 10th Collegiate says "judgment or judgement."
American Heritage 4 says "judgment, also judgement."
The current Random House gives "judgment" only as the head word but tacks
on to the end of the definition, "Also, esp. Brit., judgement."
