Plasmid size limitation on E. Coli Transformation?

I've been having a problem transforming DH5Alpha cells with a ligation
I've been trying.  I think the problem might be that the plasmid is just
too darn big, somewhere < 15 KB.  I hope someone has heard of a limit,
because I'm at a loss for any other explaination.
Thanks for any help you can lend.
