This might do the trick...

Sub PurgeValidationRule(strForm As String, Optional strRuleText As String = "")
Dim boolRemoveAllValidation As Boolean
Dim c As Control

    boolRemoveAllValidation = strRuleText = ""
    DoCmd.OpenForm strForm, acDesign
    For Each c In Forms(strForm)
        If TypeOf c Is TextBox Or TypeOf c Is ComboBox Then
            If boolRemoveAllValidation Then
                c.ValidationText = Null
            ElseIf c.ValidationText = strRuleText Then
                c.ValidationText = Null
            End If
        End If
    Next c
    DoCmd.Close acForm, strForm, acSaveYes
End Sub

Oops. Wrong property. Try this...
Sub PurgeValidationRule(strForm As String, Optional strRuleText As String = "")
Dim boolRemoveAllValidation As Boolean
Dim c As Control

    boolRemoveAllValidation = strRuleText = ""
    DoCmd.OpenForm strForm, acDesign
    For Each c In Forms(strForm)
        If TypeOf c Is TextBox Or TypeOf c Is ComboBox Then
            If boolRemoveAllValidation Then
                c.ValidationText = ""
                c.ValidationRule = ""
            ElseIf c.ValidationRule = strRuleText Then
                c.ValidationText = ""
                c.ValidationRule = ""
            End If
        End If
    Next c
    DoCmd.Close acForm, strForm, acSaveYes
End Sub
