Judges recuse themselves from hearing Clinton case

SHARE Judges recuse themselves from hearing Clinton case

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Two more judges said Monday they would not hear the lawsuit seeking President Clinton's disbarment, increasing the chance the case could fall to a recent appointee of Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee, who has harshly criticized the president's sexual misconduct.

A total of three judges appointed by Clinton when he was Arkansas governor have now declined to hear a state Supreme Court committee's lawsuit to strip the president of his license to practice law. The three judges all said they acted to avoid the appearance of partiality.
