The Arkansas Supreme Committee on Professional Misconduct recommended Monday the disbarment of President William Jefferson Clinton. A majority of the panelists who met on May 18 to consider two complaints against the president found he committed “serious misconduct” by falsely testifying about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky in a sworn deposition for the Paula Jones sexual harassment case. The disbarment recommendation will now proceed to the Pulaski County Circuit Court in Little Rock, Ark. If the court decides to disbar Clinton, he could to appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright and The Southeastern Legal Foundation of Atlanta filed the complaints with the Committee on Professional Misconduct, which recommended Clinton’s disbarment. “The Committee’s decision sends a message to the American people that the rules which govern attorney conduct will be enforced,” said Southeastern Legal Foundation President Matthew J. Glavin in a press release. “This Committee, under tremendous public and political pressure, has done its duty in issuing a serious sanction.” In a prior interview with American Lawyer Media, Glavin predicted the eventual outcome of the case. “There is no question in my mind he will be disbarred,” Glavin said. “He acknowleged his misrepresentation to the court and a federal judge found that he lied under oath.” Clinton has been a lawyer for more than 25 years. He last practiced law in 1983.
