Donald Trump may be the leading Republican candidate for president, but that doesn’t mean he can renege on jury duty.
The billionaire mogul is interrupting his campaigning to appear Monday in New York for jury duty. A campaign official confirmed Trump’s summons on Friday, CNN reports.
It’s not the first time the magnate has been summoned to appear before a jury. The New York Daily News reported earlier this summer that Trump had ignored five jury summons over nine years, and that a $250 fine would be erased when he appears on Monday.
Trump’s Special Counsel Michael Cohen told CNN on Monday that the previous jury duty summons were served to the wrong address. “You gotta serve it to the right property … I believe he owns the building but he doesn’t reside there,” Cohen said. “Nobody knows what happened to the document.”
Trump said over the weekend that he’s “looking forward to appearing.”
