Smart judge. Not always willing to listen opposing views once he has made up his mind, even preliminarily.

Judge Seltzer was biased regarding bail in several cases.

Very elitist judge. Hates, with a passion, anyone that comes to his Court without an Attorney.

Rigs cases for Corporations. As dishonest as it comes.

Does not believe the public has any rights. Hates the Constitution, but most of all Magistrate Seltzer hates the Elderly, the Disabled, and he hates American Disabled Veterans the most.

Not fit to be a Magistrate!

It doesn't get any better in the Southern District than Judge Seltzer. His courtroom demeanor couldn't be better -- he is unfailingly polite and will always allow counsel to make their points, sometimes for too long. Incredibly bright and hard-working; he keeps his cases moving. Will generally accommodate scheduling conflicts. His rulings are always fair and indicate that he has carefully considered the arguments on both sides. A fine jurist who should be a District Judge someday with any luck.
