Remove group membership from user in AD

Last Modified: 2015-12-05
I am using this PowerShell script to attempt to remove groups from disabled users, but I am getting an error. I need help to make the script work.

import-module activedirectory
$list = Import-Csv c:\user\DN.csv
foreach ($entry in $list)
$UserDN = $entry.DistinguishedName
Get-ADGroup -LDAPFilter "(member=$UserDN)" | foreach-object {
if ($_.name -ne "Domain Users") {
try {
remove-adgroupmember -identity $_.name -member $UserDN -Confirm:$False} }
catch [ADexcption] {
write-output "Error Deleting User:" $_.name


Missing statement body in foreach loop.
At C:\Scripts\Exit User.ps1:4 char:1
+  <<<< $UserDN = $entry.DistinguishedName
    + CategoryInfo          : ParserError: (:) [], ParseException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : MissingForeachStatement
