Former President George W. Bush reported for jury duty recently. President Bush reported to the George Allen Courts Building in Dallas and Judge Eric Moye took the opportunity to talk about the importance of everyone reporting for jury duty:
“One of the remarks I made to [the] 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.”
President Bush never did get to actually serve. “He was number 27 of a 35 member panel and we only got through number 23,” Judge Moye told the Dallas Morning News.
