Judge Reports for Jury Duty

Judge Thomas Fuselier of Louisiana’s 13th Judicial District was summoned to report for jury duty. He just walked across the hall to the courtroom of the only other judge in the 13th Judicial District, where the trial of a couple accused of killing and then dismembering a Texas couple will take place.

The judge handled his courtroom matters before walking across the hall to his colleague's courtroom. Judge Larry Vidrine offered to excuse his fellow judge, but Fuselier refused.

"I ask people to show up for jury duty, and I will do the same," he said.

According to the AP story, the judge was not selected to serve on the jury.
