Governor Walker dismissed from jury duty

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Governor Walker has completed his civic duty as a juror.

Actually, he ended up serving as the alternate on a jury in a personal injury case in Milwaukee County.

The governor informed the court Monday that he had received $2,000 in campaign donations from the head of the insurance company that was the defendant in the case he was hearing, so he was given alternate status.

Walker was dismissed from the case after closing arguments Wednesday.
