This work would not have been possible without the extraordinary contributions of the many 9/11 victims, family members, and lawyers who were willing to speak with me either directly or through the survey instrument and e-mails. I am grateful to them for sharing their experiences with me. I am especially grateful to those people who in addition to sharing their own stories were willing to help me connect with potential participants for this study without intruding on individuals' privacy. Ron Robinson played an important role in spurring this research in connection with the work of the Defense Research Institute on the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act. In the academic world I have benefited from comments and advice from many colleagues, notably Dan Ryan, Erica Goode, Bob Kagan, Dan Klerman, Lewis Kornhauser, Bob Mnookin, Bob Rabin, Judith Resnik, Steve Sugarman, Carroll Seron, and three anonymous referees and participants at workshops at USC, the New York Law and Society Colloquium, Stanford, Harvard, the Law and Society Association, the Conference on Empirical Legal Studies, UC Berkeley, and the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, where I was a fellow in 2006–2007. Financial and institutional support were generously provided by the Center for Advanced Study, the Mellon Foundation, and USC Law School. Esther Choi provided superb research assistance.
