Former President Obama has been called for service on a Chicago jury.
A judge from Cook County, Ill., told county commissioners on Friday that Obama plans to appear in court next month.
“He made it crystal-clear to me through his representative that he would carry out his public duty as a citizen and resident of this community,” Chief Judge Tim Evans said, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The date and location of Obama’s expected service were not disclosed.
“His safety will be uppermost in our minds,” Evans said.
Obama is unlikely to be selected for a jury even if he’s willing to appear.
He is registered to vote in Chicago and owns a home there, as well as in Washington, D.C.
