I was on the verge of posting a question, but since I've figured it out, 
will post the answer for the next person who runs into this.

When setting up Logback-access under Tomcat (as described here 
http://logback.qos.ch/access.html), if you make the mistake of putting 
the logback-access jar in your webapp's lib directory (in addition to 
putting in tomcat's lib directory as the directions specify), you will 
get this exception when you try to hit the servlet:

java.lang.ClassCastException: ch.qos.logback.core.BasicStatusManager 
cannot be cast to ch.qos.logback.core.status.StatusManager
