This is a famous Lenny Bruce quote but I am unable to understand it. What does it mean?
The only justice is in the halls, i.e. outside the courtroom. There is no justice inside the courtroom; it's in the "halls" outside the formal proceedings. Deals are made "in the halls" outside the courtroom. You get your best deal "in the halls" or "outside the courtroom". That's where you get justice; by negotiating, dealing, making your best deal.
