Like many American films of the time, the British film Justice was subject to cuts and restrictions by American city and state film censorship boards. For example, the Chicago Board of Censors cut, in Reel 2, the man stealing from a safe and, in Reel 3, the entire scene of the prisoner attacking guard, taking keys, changing clothes, etc., to where the prisoner leaves the cell.
