"Obama won't be seated in a jury box"

Odd News:

"Obama won't be seated in a jury box"

(UPI) -- A jury of one's peers in Illinois' Cook County doesn't include President Barack Obama, who won't be honoring his jury summons, officials said.

The Cook County Circuit Court sent a jury summons to Obama's South Side Chicago home, requesting his presence at the courthouse beginning Monday, WLS-AM, Chicago, reported.

A White House official said the president has alerted the court he won't be able to make it, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

"The president won't be expected to show up, but I'm sure he has already received his summons and responded," a court official said. "The jury summons contains his Kenwood address and is for a jury trial on Monday."

Obama's schedule for Monday was, well, busy. It included a meeting with a task force on the middle class, welcoming the Los Angeles Lakers, the reigning NBA champions, and discussing issues of mutual interest with Kurdistan Regional Government President Masoud Barzani. On Wednesday, Obama is scheduled to deliver his State of the Union speech.
