Justified in this case means that it is backed up by evidence. Justified true belief is not an oxymoron, it's just the epistemological stance that knowledge are beliefs that are true and backed by proof or evidence.Well yes. As soon as something becomes true (I'm not sure what you mean by 'justified' there, unless it's a common english idiom), you no longer have to believe in it. Very little stuff in science actually becomes true, rather than extremely highly probable, so it's rarely a problem in practice.
Also, what do you mean by becoming true? Do you think/believe/know/accept/acknowledge that reality needs an observer to exist and that things become true as we observe them? So if a Pyra gets turned on in Germany, but no one is around to see it, then it does not emit any light?
