I am deeply grateful for the hard work and dedication of my former and present students who helped to make this manuscript possible: Amanda Banat, Stacy Butler, Ryan Dreveskracht, Megan Hendricks, Danielle Hiraldo, Shasta Kilminster-Hadley, Amanda Kucich, Kevin Linoue, Nicole Ong, Vanessa Picard, Pankaj Raval, DeAnna Rivera, and Jennifer Szoke.
I want to heap special praise for those students who contributed solidly to the crafting of text and footnotes: Joel Feinman, Ron Gard, and Eric Pavri.
The transition from manuscript to the web could not have been possible without the gifted talents of Tory Fodder and Michael Wagenheim, and I thank them for their collaborative vision.
Lastly, and with sincere admiration, I thank Barbara Lopez, a colleague at the law school, who worked tirelessly to take my handwritten scribbles and physically prepare the manuscript for production.
