Shows up for jury duty


Bush shows up for jury duty at the George Allen Courts Building in Dallas, TX. He spends around three hours at the court chatting with other attendees. Juror:

They made it seem like it was an anonymous juror that never showed up and then they brought him in.

Bush is not selected, not due to his high-profile but because the other jurors were selected before him. Judge Moye:

It would be great if everyone took their jury service the same way [Bush] did. He understood it was important, he took it in good nature and he was engaged and talked to the lawyers. One of the remarks I made to jury was all of you have some reason why you have to do something else. But take a look over and see you have the former president who has given his time to be here, so think how good your excuses for getting out of here really are.
