NORTHBROOK, ILL. NORTHBROOK, Ill. (AP) _ He was a dynamic, results-oriented management consultant who urged rewarding productive employees and punishing laggards. That sounded good in 1989 when Allstate Corp. brought in Donald Pearson.

Six years later, Allstate says it "dropped the ball" by allowing Pearson to teach certain doctrines derived from the Church of Scientology, a Los Angeles-based, religious-scientific group. Known for its aggressive recruiting methods, the church is often described by critics as a cult.

The big insurance company based in suburban Chicago is also beset by lawsuits and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaints from more than two dozen agents, many alleging wrongful discharge.
