Judge Salter through his abhorrent actions in the Lexi Dillon Case simply cannot be trusted under any circumstances and when the time comes for him to stand for re-election I hope that the citizens of Orange County remember what he has done to Ruby and to Lexi and punishes him accordingly by not re-electing him to serve as a judge.


Based on the information that I have managed to gather about the case, I have come to find that Judge Salter may intentionally be using his knowledge of the 4th circuit court of appeals to ensure that due process rights are denied. I don't know what procedures are involved with facilitating a removal from the United States, but shouldn't it be immigration authorities namely Immigration and Customs Enforcement that should be tasked with identifying and deporting those that pose a clear risk to U.S interests and U.S citizens? A family court judge, the last time I checked doesn't have the authority to facilitate the illegal removal of a 9 year old naturalized citizen. The other issue that pertains to Lexi's impending deportation is that wouldn't this case raise eyebrows with Immigration and Customs Enforcement? A 9 year old girl traveling to Thailand with no return?

This entire case: rulings, and the outrageous conduct of Judge Salter, attorneys, minors counsel(s) needs to be looked into and harsh accountability needs to be brought forth against all that dared to take part in this outrageous violation of civil and human rights.

The justice system had failed an innocent child. Lexi needs to be with her mother so that the healing process can begin for her. This judge needs to be investigated and held accountable for any damage done to this child.

Why is this even an issue?! If the police dept., doctors, psychologists, and medical professionals all agree that Lexi was sexually abused by her father, then WHY ISNT SHE WITH HER MOTHER? If this was YOUR child or YOUR relative, I guarantee you'd move mountains to do what's right. Why can't the same be done for Lexi???? I know who is NOT getting my vote next election! Why would you order deportation of an American citizen so they can be with a parent that fled the country to avoid prosecution? DO NOT FAIL THIS POOR INNOCENT GIRL.

This judge is a disgrace to his profession! Any judge that forces a child to live with her abuser and has an American citizen ( child ) especially....deported , should be removed from the bar! He is not professional! He is a disgrace ! The fact that he is not allowing professional (doctor) evidence, is ignoring the fact that the police have removed the child twice from the father and is aldo ignoring the childs pleas for help, tells me that he is probably a predator as well! Who else would do that to a child? These judges are going to keep doing this till people decide to take matters into their hands! Their faith in the judicial system is already failing!!!

So disappointing to have a judge who is willing to put a child's life in harms way. Put yourself in the child's place. What if she were your child.? Would you sit back and just watch as her life is being robbed of her innocence.? The system fails again.

How could ANY Judge justify sending back a helpless child to a father that has molested her multiple times! Especially after she was brave enough to come forward with it, in hopes that she would be kept safe from this man! You have let her down! I can't even imagine how scared, confused, lost she must feel. Knowing that you have sentenced her to this life! Poor little girl belongs with her mother, were she is safe! You should be ashamed of yourself! It is in your hands.. How could you sleep at night, knowing while your sleeping.. she is being touched in a way NO CHILD SHOULD BE, and by her father! This makes me so sick! God help this child!

Please if you have a child of your own, save Lexi. This precious little girl needs to be safe with her mother. Why would you not want any child be safe? We can't save all children but if its in your hands to save 1 then why not save that one child. If I had the power I would save them all. You have some power and can save one at this point. I PRAY to God that he will guide you and do the right thing.

I hope immediate emergency action is taken to stay this judges order against Lexi, and the child is allowed to stay in the U.S. with her mother.

This judge has shown profoundly poor judgement in ordering a 9 year old girl to be deported to her known abusive fathet, I would hope that second to saving the child, this judge would be sanctioned up to losing his robe and even being disbarred.

The outlandish conduct by Judge Salter over the Ruby Dillon/Lexi Dillon case is appalling. Judge Salter apparently has a higher agenda without regards to the safety and well being of this child whom has been sexually abused by the father that Judge Salter has given to AND ordered her to be returned to regardless that the abuser is out of the country. Judge Salter is a sick excuse for a Judge.

This case is bordering on insane! Why would anyone give a child to a Father who has molested her!? Why has copious amounts of evidence been withheld? Her Father cannot even come back to the US - he's been barred from here for a reason, so now, they'll just ship his victim to him - this is insane! This judge needs to be disbarred for his illegal and shameful way he has handled this case because something is terribly wrong here...

Lexi's is not the only case where innocent children & mother's are being punished & put in danger for nothing other than Judge Salter's obvious bias toward so-called "father's rights" (I thought taxpayers paid him to uphold the best interests of the CHILDREN?)& desire to move things along in his courtroom like a cattle rancher. PLEASE STOP his (& other judges like him) madness before too many other children are forced to endure court sanctioned suffering!

How can a judge get away with what he has done to Lexi Dillon? She is a 9 year old girl who he has ordered to live with her father in Thailand despite evidence from the police, her therapist, and a forensic expert that the father has been sexually abusing her. She could be with her mother, whose only crime was to speak out about the abuse. That was why her parental rights were taken- the family court said she was lying. There is corruption in this case between the DA's office, CPS, and the court.

Based on the case of Lexi, Ruby Dillon's daughter, it appears that this judge is as corrupt as they come. What kind of a judge takes a child from a mothers and sends her to a pedophile out of country? He needs to be disbarred and Lexi needs to be brought back to her mother.

We the people of this country are hanging on by a thread when it comes to trusting in our judicial system. Vigilantism is very close to occurring because of the fact that we are being so let down. When it comes to our own children's safety, who can we trust to protect them, against their predator's. This judge, he is a predator. He is not only allowing this to continue, but he is greatly assisting the situation to become almost impossible for this child to be protected and rescued by anyone. He is abusing his position of authority and he need's to be stopped. Please. It is people like him that make the good law abiding citizens of this country lose faith in our judicial system. Mock my word's, there will eventually be so many of us that are finally feed up that we will eventually take matters into our own hand's. Then where will that leave this country. Please get ride of unjust judge's like hi and fix our child protective service's to where they actually protect our children.

"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".

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.

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.

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.

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!
