SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown is going a step beyond in doing the people’s business this week after receiving a notice for jury duty in Alameda County.

Brown spokesman Gil Duran said Monday that the governor received a summons asking him to call in Tuesday night to see if he will be needed at the courthouse on Tuesday or Wednesday.

As a former state attorney general and two-term governor, Brown has been party to plenty of court cases. In 1981, during his second term as governor, Brown served as foreman on a Sacramento jury that acquitted a man of malicious mischief.

His opponent last year, former eBay chief executive Meg Whitman, was called to jury duty in San Mateo County in the middle of their gubernatorial contest.
