Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon Receives Highly Recommended Rating from PA Bar’s Judicial Evaluation Commission

MEDIA, PA – Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon, a candidate for Commonwealth Court, has earned the Pennsylvania Bar Association Judicial Evaluation Commission’s top rating of “Highly Recommended.” Judge Fizzano Cannon is a member of the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas and is running as a Republican to fill one of two vacancies on the Commonwealth Court.

In a press release announcing its rating of Judge Fizzano Cannon as “Highly Recommended,” the Pennsylvania Bar Association Judicial Evaluation Commission wrote the following:

“The candidate has since 2012 served as a judge on the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas where she heads the civil trial section overseeing both civil and equity matters. At the same time, she has served as pretrial judge, responsible for deciding more than 800 motions and petitions.

Having graduated from law school with honors, the candidate has continued her legal scholarship by lecturing extensively throughout the commonwealth on various areas of law. The candidate’s legal writing is clear, concise and thorough. Her courtroom demeanor has earned the respect of her colleagues as well as that of the attorneys and litigants who appear before her.

The candidate’s extensive civic activities add depth to her illustrious legal career. The commission believes that the candidate would perform admirably as a judge on the Commonwealth Court and highly recommends her candidacy.”

According to the PA Bar’s Judicial Evaluation Commission, the rating of “Highly Recommended” means that: “The candidate possesses the highest combination of legal ability, experience, integrity and temperament and would be capable of outstanding performance as a judge or justice of the court for which he/she is a candidate.”

“It is honor to receive the Commission’s rating of ‘Highly Recommended’ as a candidate for Commonwealth Court,” said Fizzano Cannon. “As voters review my background and experience, I hope that they too will recognize my qualifications and support my candidacy in the primary and general elections. If elected, I pledge to serve with integrity, impartiality, and to treat all who appear before me with fairness and respect.”

The Commonwealth Court is one of Pennsylvania’s two statewide intermediate appellate courts, the other being the Pennsylvania Superior Court. The Commonwealth Court, which is made up of nine judges, is primarily responsible for matters involving state and local governments, non-profit corporations and regulatory agencies. It also acts as a trial court when lawsuits are filed by or against the Commonwealth.
