HARRISBURG (AP) — A former Pennsylvania congressman and state auditor general is fighting to keep his law license in a disciplinary proceeding.

A two-day hearing in the case of Don Bailey before a three-lawyer panel was expected to wind up today.

The state Supreme Court's Office of Disciplinary Counsel accuses Bailey of violating the rules of professional conduct for making false statements criticizing certain federal judges.

Bailey is best-known in recent years as a combative civil-rights lawyer form Harrisburg. He says the charges were manufactured by a clique of judges who are out to get him.

The Vietnam War veteran served in Congress from 1979 to 1983 and served as Pennsylvania's elected auditor general from 1985 to 1989.
