I dont see that much of a difference between this and your morality question.
An atheist, on a general basis, is no more likely to be any less moral or lack a sense of justice than someone who is religious.
Though you could say the reasons may differ in some cases.
In some ways, would not justice (both in the moral and legal sense) be more important to the Atheist since he/she does not believe in an afterlife. Making the world a better place would take on greater importance. A just society is everyone's goal, but people come at it from a different philosophical background.
The late Justice Scalia wrote a lot on this subject (mostly related to the death penalty) and how reconciled his faith with the death penalty.
Some do. I would say most do.
Just not the divine kind.
Not the absolute kind, like in karma or someone going to Heaven or Hell based on what they've done. But yes many atheists want and understand justice on some level. In fact this may be a human universal, a sense of fairness, justice, and reciprocity (the Golden Rule has existed in one form or another in nearly every culture).
Everybody believes in justice. Why should Atheists be categorized in this manner? But justice doesn't come on its own accord you have to strive for it.
