An Apostrophe Catastrophe™ From Someone Who Ought to Know Better

Seen in an e-mail from one of the big legal publishers (there are really only two, so that narrows it down; emphasis added):

“Tailor a motion or argument to a specific judge by reviewing the cases, phrases, and judge’s a judge is most likely to rely upon.”

Judges is a plural noun here, not a possessive. Obviously.

Did they fire all the copy-editors?
