I just had a CB and one interviewer insisted that I made a typo on my resume by using "memorandums" instead of "memoranda". I explained to her that I think both forms are acceptable but she seemed skeptical. I just googled it and looked up the dictionary and clearly both are frequently used in business settings.

I am writing thank-you emails now and do you guys think I should mention this in the email? On one hand, a typo on the resume is a dealbreaker so I may want to correct her. On the other hand, it might not be a good idea to challenge an interviewer.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Absolutely do not bring this up. You already said that you thought it was acceptable. If it's a dealbreaker for her, she'll look it up to double-check. If you e-mailed me to tell me that you were right and I was wrong about "memorandums" being a typo, I can't imagine a way you could phrase it that would not make me immediately think you were rubbing it in, and I would probably want to ding you for it.

Also, regardless of what google says, I don't blame the interviewer for considering it a typo, since I've reviewed hundreds of legal resumes and don't think I've ever seen anyone say "memorandums." Just accept that you used a phrase that seemed like a typo to an interviewer because it's not used often and move on.

This would be an interesting "thank you" email to draft, but no, don't bring this up. I actually doubt she'll look it up regardless of whether it's a dealbreaker for her (she doesn't really have anything invested in your success or ensuring that you get a fair shot, and she clearly feels strongly that "memorandums" is wrong and you had a typo on your materials), but there's really no set of circumstances where it'll get better if you also make it seem like when a higher-up is editing your work you're going to constantly run to the Bluebook or Strunk & White or whatever to prove them wrong.
