JUSTICE IS SWIFT if somewhat confusing

This is an odd vintage post card. The copy on the back doesn't seem to make much sense or provide any guidance as to what this was about.

Click on either image to see it larger.

Here's what I have found.

The manufacturer, Elba Systems based in Denver, created video and audio content for rather dry subject matter. The company was actually E. L. Barrett & Associates dba (doing business as) Elba. I believe this card, titled "The Case That Nobody Won," was for a filmstrip for the Guarantee Mutual Life Co. The image below is from here.

Other exciting Elba titles released as 33-1/3 RPM recordings include:
Bury Me In Eden
Introduction to Modern Tools
and yes, you can even get "The Case That Nobody Won" as a record.

Thinking to yourself, "Well doggone it! I want a copy of this post card!" Spend $1.79 + postage and you can get it here. But better rush because the auction mallet will be coming down within 22 hours. Suitable for framing if you're an attorney with a license from some online diploma mill.

So if you ever do find it hanging on the wall of an attorney you're using try to remember you've been warned.

    This makes perfect sense. For decades, the insurance industry and the American Chamber of Commerce have waged a PR campaign trying to convince us that law suits are destroying the United States. They've been successful enough to convince large numbers of Americans that it would be a good thing if we gave up our right to sue for losses caused by the greed and stupidity of the business community. This is a bit of political history.
