Swift Justice with Jackie Glass (also known simply as Swift Justice and previously known as Swift Justice with Nancy Grace) was an American binding arbitration.

In the first season when HLN host Nancy Grace was the adjudicator, the usual "panel/seal/bench" setting of a traditional court show was not used, as the show used a more modern setting, including an open lectern where Grace stood rather than sat, a large projection display in the studio, and a set mainly fitted with brightly colored backgrounds, with no bar separating the audience gallery (who sat in the round along the edges of the set) from the litigants.

In the first season, the program was shot at the studios of Georgia Public Broadcasting in Atlanta to accommodate Grace wanting to stay in the Atlanta area, and CBS received subsidies from the Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office to do so; both GPB and the Georgia Film Office received end credits for their assistance in the program. In May 2011 however, the program began to film instead at Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood, California, forcing Grace to commute to Los Angeles for cases.

On May 24, 2011, it was announced that Jackie Glass, known for presiding over the O. J. Simpson robbery case in Las Vegas, would replace Grace on Swift Justice, and the show would moving production to Los Angeles.[1] Grace told the New York Post that family obligations were the deciding factor in her departure.[2] In the course of the move, the program came under the production authority of Big Ticket Television, which produces Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown, and was reduced from being transmitted in high definition to being filmed in 480i standard definition and became a more traditional court show, likely as filming took place in the same studio as the latter programs with a different set; those shows had not yet switched to HD for that season. Another element of the program, which used Polycom and Skype video from litigant's homes to adjudicate some cases via webcam to reduce travel costs, was also dropped for the second season.

Swift Justice was canceled due to low ratings near the end of the second season. The final original episode aired on April 25, 2012, with repeats continuing until September 2012.
