Why Lawsuits Are Good for America: Disciplined Democracy, Big Business, and the Common Law

By Carl T. Bogus | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I am fortunate that so many people helped me in so many ways. I am grateful to those who chatted with me about their work, cases they handled, or their areas of expertise, often at considerable length. These include John W. (Don) Barrett, Barry Goldberg, Sally Greenberg, Jonathan Grohsman, Edgar F. Heiskell III, David Novoselsky, David Pittie, Kristen Rand, and Harry Stoffer. I am indebted to three energetic research assistants—Christopher H. Lordan, Lorraine K. Newton, and Rebecca R. Yeager—all of whom are, or will soon be, alumni of the Roger Williams University School of Law. I benefited from the professional and cheerful assistance from the law library staff at Roger Williams; special thanks to Nan Balliot, Stephanie Edwards, and Lucinda Harrison-Cox. It was a pleasure working with the highly professional editors at New York University Press; thanks especially to Joanna L. Mullins for excellent copyediting work. And thanks to the Chicago-Kent Law Review, Connecticut Law Review, and Missouri Law Review in which portions of this work appeared in different form.

Last but far from least, many thanks to those who read and commented on drafts of this work: Christian C. Day, Richard Delgado, Jay M. Feinman, Cynthia J. Giles, Jonathan Gutoff, Niko Pfund, Jean Stefancic, and Eric Zinner.
