Pursuant to the General Orders of the District Court and the Bankruptcy Court, to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all hearings before Judge Saltzman will be via Zoom until further notice. The courtroom will be locked; parties must appear by Zoom and will not be permitted to appear in the courtroom. There is no need to contact the court for permission. Please check Judge Saltzman’s tentative rulings to find the Zoom link for each day.
If you have an evidentiary hearing or trial scheduled, the court will contact you to discuss arrangements.
Judge’s Copies: Judge Saltzman does not follow the Judge’s Copy requirements of Amended General Order 20-12. Until further notice, no judge’s copy of any document is required unless a copy is requested by chambers. If chambers calls to request a judge’s copy, it must be provided by means such that it is received in chambers within two business days (for example, by messenger or overnight mail).
Notwithstanding the requirement in General Order 20-12, Judge Saltzman does not require a call to chambers to advise that a document was filed unless it seeks emergency relief.
