Judge Saltzman's Self Calendaring Information
The self-calendaring system allows counsel and parties to schedule hearing dates for matters heard on regular notice without prior approval from the Courtroom Deputy. Matters requiring more than 15 minutes should not be self-calendared. Please contact the Courtroom Deputy to obtain a hearing date for any matter requiring more than 15 minutes.
Judge Saltzman holds hearings in Courtroom 304, United States Bankruptcy Court, 3420 Twelfth Street, Riverside, California 92501. Please refer to the appropriate Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure and Local Bankruptcy Rules (“LBRs”) regarding the filing and service of motions and the time frames for filing papers.
