Boston — He didn't win the presidency, but he was selected jury foreman.
Sen. John Kerry's public profile and prosecutorial past didn't spare him from performing that most mundane of civic responsibilities: jury duty. Kerry was not only chosen this week to sit on a jury in Suffolk Superior Court, but also was elected foreman. The former Democratic presidential candidate reported for duty Monday.
The case involved two men who sued the city for injuries suffered in a 2000 car accident involving a school principal. The Kerry-led jury rejected their claim Tuesday, and his fellow jurors said the state's junior senator was a natural leader.
