Obama’s Jury Duty Begins Wednesday

(CBS) – Former President Barack Obama is expected to report for jury-pool duty Wednesday, CBS 2 has learned.

Obama’s jury summons was reported last month.

The former president, who still owns a home in the Kenwood neighborhood, will report for jury duty at the Daley Center downtown.

Like any other juror, Obama will earn $17.20 per day served.

It was not clear if the courthouse would provide Obama with a private room for security reasons while he waits to be summoned to a specific courtroom for jury duty, or if he will wait in the same assembly room as other prospective jurors.

This isn’t his first time Obama has been selected for jury duty since he was elected president. He also was summoned for jury duty at the Bridgeview Courthouse in January 2010, but was excused from serving because of his busy schedule at the time.
