What others have said about Hon. Linda A. Cartisano



Comment #: PA53
Rating:Not Rated
Linda Cartisano has no business as politician sitting on the Bench in judgment of others.


Comment #: PA52
Judge Cartisano has no knowledge of basic family law guidelines in Pennsyvlania and has clear issues in dealing with Pro Se litigants. She modified custody during a contempt hearing where no petition to modify custody was before the Court, in violation of guidelines and PHD v. RRD in PA Super, Langendorfer v. Spearman in PA Super, GA v. DL in PA Super. She has had 18 months to schedule a trial for custody and refuses to be expedient. She should be impeached.

This judge is my favorite in Delaware County in terms of being thoughtful, prepared, even-handed, and sharp. She knows family law and I wish that there were more judges like her.

Judge Cartisano was clear with my attorney in conference what she believed which was not my position. Now I am going to court where she is the judge. Having a judge who expressed her position on the outcome before the actual hearing demands she recuse herself. She succumbs to the emotional energy in the room. I highly anxious she gets anxious and emotional.
