Actually Heck Tate said this.

Sorry, Atticus does say this only after Heck Tate convinces him of it. The Law is not black and white, so to speak. Absolutes do not exist n our world. The law tries to even things out but sometimes the greater good needs the rules bent. Boo would be destroyed should the truth come out. In this case nobody would benefit from the truth, the law needed to be "bent" a little.
