Retiring federal prosecutor breathed ‘life into Lady Justice’s ideals’ in Baltimore

She is blindfolded and holds a set of scales and a sword. The blindfold signifies that justice should be administered equally (although, to some, it may signify blinders to injustice). The scales represent the balance between competing interests in a dispute, and that the interests of the victim, the defendant and society must all be considered.
