The Chicago Sun-Times reports that President Barack Obama has been called to do his civic duty — and show up for jury duty in a Bridgeview, IL, on Monday.

But fear not, suburban Illinois suspects. “The president won’t be expected to show up,” a court source told the Sun-Times.

So there you have it, a surefire way to dodge jury duty: get elected president.
