Pres. Obama summoned for jury duty
January 24, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- President Barack Obama has a busy week ahead, but one thing he won't be doing is appearing for jury duty in suburban Bridgeview, Ill.
The court sent a summons to the president's South Side home. He was asked to appear for duty beginning Monday.
However, a White House official said the president has alerted the court that he won't be able to make it.
Instead, he might be working on his State of the Union address, which he delivers Wednesday.
