Gov. Jerry Brown May Serve Jury Duty

Governor Jerry Brown
We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Jury duty is always good for people watching, and one state courthouse may provide particularly good fodder this week, as Governor Jerry Brown is slated to make an appearance as a juror, reports NBC LA. The CA state governor has been asked, by the same kind of summons received by civilians like you or I, to call in and see if his services are needed on Wednesday. No word yet on whether he also has to call in for the rest of the week, or whether being the governor means you just have to make the one token phone call and then you can call it a day.

Governor Brown has had a busy week: today, he made the important decision of signing into law Part A of the California Dream Act earlier during a visit to Los Angeles.
