Use the from: search operator to search documents shared from someone:

from:name@example.com

Use the to: search operator to search documents shared to someone:

to:name@example.com

You can also combine them. For example, the following will find your own documents shared with alice@example.com.

from:me to:alice@example.com

Further information on searching can be found here.

Hope this helps.

That did it! One note for anyone else who has this issue: this search seems to be case sensitive. –  Andrew Warner Apr 8 '11 at 15:35
    
Also note, doesn't seem to work with groups. –  Nik Nov 29 '13 at 15:15
