Mass Torts in a World of Settlement

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

The completion of this book would not have been possible without the intellectual and personal support of many people. Three extraordinary scholars I am fortunate to count as friends—John Goldberg, Samuel Issacharoff, and Robert Rasmussen—gave generously of their scarce time to read the manuscript. I am grateful for their faith in me and in the project—especially for their willingness to push me hard about the arguments advanced in the book. I am indebted, in addition, to several scholars who enabled me to draw on their expertise in particular subject areas: Lisa Schultz Bressman on administrative law, Paul Edelman on the quantitative aspects of aggregation, Chris Guthrie on the cognitive psychology of litigation, Steven Hetcher on tort theory, Suzanna Sherry on the law of federal courts, and Charles Silver on the theory and practice of aggregate litigation. Howard Erichson, David Rosenberg, and an anonymous reviewer provided extensive comments on the entire manuscript in connection with the editorial process. Still others in the academy and the practicing bar— Timothy Lytton and Mark Plevin, respectively—assisted me in assembling relevant information for the book. I also benefited from the opportunity to present portions of the book at Stephen Bundy and Eleanor Swift's civil justice workshop at Boalt Hall School of Law and other portions at a Vanderbilt University Law School faculty workshop. Finally, two exceptional deans—Kent Syverud and, now, Edward Rubin—have created a dynamic, supportive environment for scholarship at Vanderbilt and accommodated me with the time needed to work intensively on the book.

My thinking about mass torts has been sharpened immeasurably by the opportunity to teach the subject over the past decade to the talented, energized students at both Vanderbilt University Law School and the Univer| 275
