Madonna Answers To Jury Duty – Indeed Everyone Can Get Called

July 9, 2014

Madonna reported for jury service in Manhattan on Monday but less than two hours later the pop icon was dismissed from the courthouse.

She waited several hours in a separate room from other prospective jurors before she was excused without being called to serve as member of the jury on any case that day.

Officials confirmed that they already have enough potential candidates.

David Bookstaver, the spokesman for the state court system said her appearance “really goes to show that everyone gets called.”

“The intent here was not to create a distraction to other jurors or the business of the court… She got credit for her service and we’re delighted she came,” said David and added that if Madonna had been placed in a waiting room with other jurors, the court would have faced the additional expense of stationing police officers there.

This is not the first time Madonna has been called for jury service. She was previously summoned to court in 2008 and waited for four hours in a Beverly Hills courthouse before being excused.

The 55-year-old is now exempt from jury service until 2020.

It appears that Madonna did everything in her power to ‘justify her love’ for the legal system, but she’ll have to wait a bit longer to actually become involved in it as a one of the 12 jury members.
