Barack Obama is Going to Court! But the Reason May Surprise You…

Imagine being on this jury team.

During a budget hearing, Chief Judge Tim Evans of Cook County, Illinois said that former president Barack Obama would serve jury duty in November.  Obama owns homes in both Washington D.C. and Kenwood, Illinois.

The president expects to serve.

Obviously, there will be hefty logistics in place to ensure the safety of the president.  Dates and locations remain undisclosed.

From Judge Evans:

Obviously, we will make certain that he has all the accouterments that accompany a former president.  His safety will be uppermost in our minds.

The Chicago Tribune details some of the more mundane moments of being a juror in Chicago.  Sounds like this will be quite different from Mr. Obama’s experiences in the West Wing.

From the article:

Jurors can be called for civil or criminal pools — which are used to select jurors for trials — and they can be called to any of the county’s city or suburban courthouses. All jurors watch a decades-old video narrated by a mustachioed Lester Holt, once a local news anchor, about their duties.
