Re "Ethics Panel Advises Clinton Be Disbarred," May 23: The Arkansas committee made the correct decision as reflected in Monday's recommendation to disbar Bill Clinton. Their recommendation was based on actions by Clinton that led to Judge Susan Webber Wright finding him in civil contempt of court for "false, misleading and evasive answers that were designed to obstruct the judicial process" in relation to his sworn deposition in the Paula Jones case.
