Donald Trump Will Report for Jury Duty

1 minute read

Donald Trump is heading back to court.

But when he appears at a Manhattan courtroom on Aug. 17, he won’t be on either end of a lawsuit, CNN reports. Instead, he’ll be reporting for jury duty.

“Despite running for President and running a massive, multi-billion-dollar company, Mr. Trump will be at jury duty Monday,” Alan Garten, general counsel to the Trump Organization, told the New York Daily News on Friday. According to New York’s Jury Duty website, there are no exemptions for presidential candidates or multi-billionaires.

The courtroom appearance by Trump, who is no stranger to litigation, will make him one for six for fulfilling his jury duty summonses. A judge fined him $250 earlier this year for ignoring every summons for nearly a decade.
