Gov. Walker will serve jury duty

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker will be taken away from his office for a few days to do his civic duty.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the governor got his summons Monday to arrive Tuesday morning at the Milwaukee County Courthouse for what's expected to be a two-day trial.

Gov. Walker will hear a personal injury lawsuit filed against an insurance company.

Walker said it's the third time he's been called for jury duty since holding public office, though he didn't get picked to sit on a case either time.

Walker is a Wauwatosa resident. Officeholders can serve on juries, but often get bumped for reasons that usually go unstated.
