We could not have written this article without access to the Papers of Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. We are thus grateful to justice Brennan for allowing us to use his collection and to Mary Wolfskill and David Wigdor of the Library of Congress for easing considerably the data compilation process. We also thank the National Science Foundation (SBR-9320284) and the Center for Business, Law, and Economics at Washington University for the support of this work. Finally, we appreciate the helpful comments provided by Charles Cameron, Jack Knight, and Jeffrey A. Segal.
