Meaning "a short case"

hello everyone!

Please help me to understand the meaning of the phrase "go get me a short case"
in the following context:

Cartoonist John Callahan, who was paralyzed following a drunken traffic accident was able to milk his personal tragedy for laughs. In one of his many cartoons, before discovering that he's paralyzed for life, John tells the attending patrolman, "There's a five-dollar bill in my left shirt pocket, get me a short case.
