Former President Barack Obama is just like the rest of us, he too gets called for jury duty but unlike many, he is actually willing to follow through with his civic duty.
Cook County Chief Judge Timothy Evans has said that Obama will be serving jury duty sometimes next month.
“It is highly appreciated,” Evans stated.
Former President Obama is living in Washington D.C. and has been doing all kinds of things since he left office. Many of them relating to the Obama Foundation that he started recently.
He is also doing his part, along with the other living past presidents, to raise money to help the victims of this year’s hurricanes in Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico.
The exact date of Obama’s jury duty is not known, just that it will be sometime in November.
