Obama expected to show up for jury duty in Chicago

The Chicago Tribune reports Obama arrived at the center this morning to join other potential jury members in the selection room.

Obama is the highest-ranking former public official to be called to jury duty in Chicago, and nearly certainly the only one who ever arrived with a Secret Service detail.

Nor is he the first famous Chicagoan to be called to jury duty.

Stetler will serve as the show's consultant and House of Cards writer Jay Carson will executive produce as well as pen the series. In addition to starring, Aniston and Witherspoon will also produce, as well as co-own the show (alongside Ellenberg).

Bush was not selected to serve as a juror, but images of the smiling former president posing with delighted citizens at the courthouse in Dallas, Texas quickly showed up on social media.

Not quite as simple as Harry Potter Go or anything like that, this one is going to be called Harry Potter : Wizards Unite . No additional details were shared by Niantic but expect more teases and information as we get closer to the 2018 release.

Cook County pays jurors a rate of $17.20 for each day of service, and Evans said the court will be sending Obama a check, adding that his staffers indicated that the former president will likely donate his earnings.

It is a mandatory requirement for USA citizens to attend for jury duty when they are summoned.

Theoretically, every US citizen over the age of 18 could be called for jury duty. In 2004, Oprah Winfrey was on a Chicago jury that convicted a man of murder.
