Like a juror: Madonna does NYC jury duty, briefly

July 7, 2014

NEW YORK (AP) — Madonna has spent a little time living in the judicial world.

The pop superstar turned up for jury duty at a New York City courthouse Monday.

The singer had gotten excused from a jury service date from May. She didn't have to stick around for long this time.

She was dismissed within two hours. She spent it in a clerk's office instead of in the sprawling juror waiting room.

Court system spokesman David Bookstaver says officials cut her loose because there were plenty of prospective jurors for the day's needs. They also didn't want her presence to create a distraction in the jury-selection process.

He says her appearance alone "really goes to show that everyone gets called."

Her spokeswoman says only that Madonna did her service.
