Carrying a sack lunch and reading material, former Gov. Bobby Jindal is reporting this week for jury duty in Baton Rouge’s 19thJudicial District Court.
As of Tuesday morning, Jindal had not been chosen to hear a trial, according to an aide. His service began Monday morning.
Hundreds of prospective jurors serve the week and wait in the courthouse until selected to hear a trial. Prospective jurors in East Baton Rouge Parish are chosen at random from voter registration and drivers’ license lists.
The former governor, who left office last week, now lives in a subdivision off Nicholson Drive in south Baton Rouge.
