David Schultz Honored with Innocence Project of Minnesota's 2016 Never Forgotten Award

November 11, 2016

Maslon is pleased to announce that David Schultz, partner in Maslon's Litigation Group, was honored with the 2016 Never Forgotten Award by the Innocence Project of Minnesota during its 2016 Benefit for Innocence on November 10. The Innocence Project of Minnesota initiated its Never Forgotten Award in 2010 as a way to recognize individuals who act to improve the justice system by going above and beyond ordinary efforts to overturn wrongful convictions. The Award honors those individuals who:

  • are dedicated to the fair execution of law,
  • have strengthened the integrity of the justice system through needed reforms, or
  • have been the primary force behind freeing an innocent person in prison.

The Innocence Project of Minnesota has honored David Schultz as this year's recipient of the Never Forgotten Award for his tireless work on the Terry Olson case. Terry Olson spent 11 years imprisoned for a crime he did not commit and was released on September 13, 2016 as a direct result of David's skillful and dedicated representation.

David is a trial lawyer and focuses his practice on high stakes litigation in the areas of product liability, healthcare, commercial disputes, civil and criminal fraud, and intellectual property. He has tried cases to verdict in state and federal courts throughout the country. David is board certified as a Civil Trial Advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and as a Civil Trial Specialist by the Minnesota State Bar Association. He has taught trial advocacy at the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA). David has been a member of the Board of Directors for Innocence Project of Minnesota since 2004 and is dedicated to pro bono service.
