Karlene Goller, vice president and deputy general counsel of the Los Angeles Times, presented the award to Olson, noting his victory in a California Supreme Court case vindicating the right of access to public employee salaries, his handling of California Public Records Act cases involving access to venture capital information, and his willingness to go to court on very short notice when necessary to fight for access to information.
