Two Administrative Office employees have been specially recognized for their contributions to the federal courts. Judge Donald C. Pogue, chair of the Judicial Conference Committee on Audits and Administrative Office Accountability, awarded Tim Dole, Attorney Advisor, Office of the Deputy Director; and Ross Eisenman, Assistant Director, Office of Facilities and Security, the 2010 Leonidas Ralph Mecham Award for Exemplary Service to the Courts.

Award recipients are selected for significant accomplishments on a specific project or effort that has improved court administration, internal controls, program effectiveness, communications, or efficiency in the courts or the AO.

Dole was recognized for managing to completion two major national projects of substantial importance to the courts: production of a new Guide to Judiciary Policy, and revision and modernization of the forms used in the courts.

Eisenman was recognized for his leadership in providing 2,000 judges with home alarm systems in the wake of the murder of members of Judge Joan Lefkow’s family, and in instituting budget controls in the facilities program that have resulted in significant savings.
