Wisconsin governor selected for jury duty

Jan. 7, 2014 at 5:00 PM

MILWAUKEE, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was selected for jury duty and has been placed on a panel to hear a personal injury lawsuit.

Walker reported to the Milwaukee County Courthouse and was advised by Circuit Judge Kevin Martens to arrive at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday for what's expected to be a two-day trial in the matter of Carri and Michael Natarelli and their insurance company versus Gabriel Deltoro and his insurer, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Tuesday.

The governor said he had been called for jury duty previously his eight-year tenure as Milwaukee County executive and again while serving as an Assembly representative. He said he was not selected to sit on a case for either of those previous occasions.

Walker said it was "not too much of a surprise" that he wasn't picked to sit on a murder trial Monday morning.
