* Associate Professor of Law, University of Georgia School of Law. B.A., Emory
University, 1986; J.D., Vanderbilt Law School, 1989. I am grateful to my colleague Professor
Walter Hellerstein for his numerous thoughtful comments and suggestions. The Article
benefited greatly from his insights. I would also like to express special gratitude to my three
superb research assistants Pam Brannon, Merritt McAlister, and Rob Snyder, who were each
essential to different aspects of this project. Finally, I would be remiss ifI did not thank my
wife Kim for her constant support, encouragement, and willingness to read and re-read a
seemingly unending parade of drafts.
