Once a custom 'group by' field has been set and the group has been named, it appears that it cannot be removed from the View, Group By dialog.  

I've tried to remove it by going to View > Group By > More Groups > Organize > remove from list and say ok > apply > save file > close file > reopen file.  The group appears to be gone but still shows up at the top of the Group By dialog.  

Please advise on how to fix this if possible.

It seems to me that you only deleted it from the current file, but left it in the Global configuration file.  The result is that Project still shows the group.

You have two options:
If you just want to remove it from the drop-down dialog, you need to go to View > Group By > More Groups > Edit (with your custom group selected) > Show in menu (clear the checkbox in the top right) > Save.
If you want to delete the group completely, then go to Organizer as you did before, and remove it from both lists (left = Global.MPT / right = your project).  Then save your file, close it, and reopen it.

Hope this helps.
