May truth prevail
Explanation:
My inclination would be to translate it this way. There are many (too many) references on line, even transcripts from trials. I found nothing to this or other effects in the 'Lectric Law Library, which is a great resource (enclosed here in any case).

Thanks Paola, I had already translated it as "The truth shall prevail" but I prefer your expression.
