The authors would like to thank the students of the Law and Psychiatry class
of 2006. Their enthusiasm for the course and topic was definitely infectious. We
would also like to acknowledge the assistance of those that attended the STLA
seminar on May 12, 2006. Their subsequent comments and suggestions certainly
improved the paper. The remaining errors are of course our responsibility.
