I'm wondering if the colon is used naturally in the following title:

Joe Black's Acquittal: When Justice Fails

I'd appreciate your help.

It is used correctly
A colon ( : ) is used after an independent clause to add information that helps illustrate or clarify what it says. It is most commonly used to introduce a list, but it can also introduce words, phrases, or entire clauses that complete the meaning of the clause that came before it.

Thus "When Justice Fails" is added to the meaning of "Joe Black's Acquittal"
