Partner Dale Allen Appointed as Federal Early Neutral Evaluator and Member of the Board of Directors of the Olympic Club of San Francisco

Partner Dale Allen has been appointed by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California to its prestigious Alternative Dispute Resolution Program as an Early Neutral Evaluator with a focus on resolving cases in the area of police practice litigation. Neutrals are selected by the United States District Court judges to assist parties in evaluating early resolution of cases as efficiently as possible. The principal goal of the program is to reduce cost and delay by having neutrals assist parties with focusing on the pertinent matters in dispute, understanding relevant law and legal issues, and identifying evidence and inferences likely to be drawn from the evidence.

Dale was also recently appointed to the Board of Directors of The Olympic Club of San Francisco. The Olympic Club was founded on May 6, 1860 and enjoys the distinction of being America’s oldest athletic club. Long a west coast powerhouse in amateur sports, The Olympic Club is the home of many local, regional, national and international champions. The Olympic Club is also the site of the famous Lakeside Course, which has hosted five United States Open Championships. The Olympic Club boasts a membership of nearly 10,000 members. Dale will serve a three year term.
