He is not a good judge at all. He needs to be disbarred.

Im going through a custody issue and Salter has shown bias towards the other party, who has deep affiliations with Loyola. Can you tell me when Salter was a professor there? It will help me connect the dots in proving his bias and conflict of intrest in my case. Thank you! A railroaded father.

In addition to my earlier review, I failed to mention that the last court hearing where Judge Salter showed obvious bias toward the litigious father was conducted after-hours & therefore off the record.

"Honorable" Judge Salter has allowed a narcissistic father to bring file multiple hearings against a mother who has tried to do nothing but make things better for the sake of her child. Judge Salter has allowed the father to rant & rave at will, has allowed unsubstantiated lies & illegally obtained "evidence" from the father for over a year. The mother has remained silent & given in to multiple demands to fruitlessly appease the father. At a recent hearing, after a lengthy tirade by the father, the mother's attorney uttered the words, "We have some concerns Your Honor". Judge Waltz replied by yelling at the mother "You'd better try to work this out because if you leave the decisions to me it won't be good", then continued the hearing for another 6 weeks. At the most recent hearing Judge Salter again allowed the father a lengthy rant full of lies. The mother attempted to explain her reasons but before she could finish one sentence Judge Salter cut her off, sided with the father & made a decision that negatively impacted the mother's employment & her older child's school schedule. The father's only clearly stated reasoning was "I will not budge on this your honor. She has several other children (she only has one other child) & needs to learn to figure things out". Judge Salter turned to the mother & angrily said "You'd better figure it out".

This judge is has no experience in the courtroom. He is biased and unprofessional. When ruling he does not consider the facts and choses to ignore them. He does not review testimony.

Definitely one of the reasons our court system is so backed up. Recently observed 4 cases one morning and he made no decisions. Continued two cases and sent two cases to another court. and one of the cases he made no decison on was a 730 evaluation he had ordered. Obviously did not like the findings or recommendations by the evaluator and ignored the whole thing. Transferred to another court.

I'm not sure hey pays attention or even shows up. He seems to be senile as he pays no attention to the facts or what is taking place in his courtroom.
No experience in family law. Not sure what he is doing.

Very poor communication skills, inability to be unbiased or asses documented facts. He is lazy regarding the review of testimony and allows cases to be prolonged over months. Seems to be incapable of focusing on the facts.

This judge has no experience in family law. It is obvious he has no clue what he is doing. He does not rule in accordance to the law or facts. He is biased and prejudiced. He makes closed chambered deals. A utter disc race to the American judicial system.

He is an embarrassment to the judicial system. No experience in family law and had no business in family law. Prior experience: appellate research Appointed by the " terminator". Total disregard for evidence and rules based on hearsay. If you have this judge, run for the hills unless, of course your attorney went to Loyola Law School or belongs to the same "country club" or perhaps you are on a committee with Salter at the Orange County Bar Association.

Judge Salter makes his decisions based on on closed chamber deals. He is biased, unethical and corrupt,
.
He is narrow minded and one sided. Curiously enough he tends to favor the party who was in his his law classes when he taught at Loyola. A conflict of interest? The pattern speaks for itself.

Glenn Salter rules from closed chamber conferences and not on the evidence presented. He allows his judgment to lose sight of the issues at hand by allowing his proceedings to carry on for months. He allows continuance after continuance and regards family law as if it was criminal law. His rulings are based on endless hours of hearsay with little regard to the evidence at hand.

Judge Salter should go back to lawschool. He has spent most of his career behind a desk and his courtroom presence is ridiculous. He pays no attention to the evidence presented, is ill prepared, and biased. I am not sure why or how he was appointed. He is a discrace to the American judicial system.

Biased and negligent in reviewing the facts, rules on hearsay. Is biased and
allows back door deals. He has no control over the court room. No wonder California is bankrupt.

Coverage of the courts and judges (officers of the courts) is woefully neglected, and the conduct of this judge is a mega-indictment of a system secured by secrecy, back door collaboration and deals in chambers not recorded (much less witnessed), such that the losing party can just go sulk! It is everybody's business to know about these defects in our "systems of justice" -- whether it's the dissolution of a marriage, or Family Court issues of violence and abuse. It could be any one of us! He is the worst! Uninformed? He was a managing attorney for the appellate court!

Follows in Judge Waltz's footsteps....possibly more fair and even-tempered but has upheld almost every decision of Judge Waltz even though Judge Waltz was clearly a very ill jurist. Judge Salter needs to show some independence and stop calling Judge Waltz for advice on cases!

Judge Salter is a gift to the family law bench. He's brilliant, fair, calm, courteous to all, is not at all intimidated by litigants or lawyers, and runs a tight ship. And he seems to care. We can only hope he stays.
