Thanks for this. I am not aware of having seen a text with mixed spellings before. I couldn't say that 'judgement' is wrong to mean a court's decision, but teaching people legal English I would always comment on it. I have also wondered when mixing 'judgment' and 'acknowledgement', but I decided not to mention that for the sake of simplicity.
The spelling 'judgment' doesn't seem to me exemplified in particular by the European Court of Justice - I would first mention tbe Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, the Court of Appeal, the High Court and so on (search at www.bailii.org).


Thank you Margaret. I really can't remember why I chose to mention the ECJ particularly. I'm well aware of differences in usage but students do like to know what's right and what's wrong.
