So, the Phoenix Times reports that Seagal found in contempt of court and dealt a $500 fine for attempting to avoid Jury Service. Judge Warner clearly doesn’t like him.
Everyone does jury service… John McCain found a day, took jury service, and a lot of [people] depend on him. Judges do jury service. I’ve had a number of my colleagues on the [jury] panels. I get doctors, I get lawyers. I get business owners, I get street sweepers. Everyone comes in and gets jury service.
Also, his attorney Mark Goldman had was being awfy creative:
Mr. Seagal’s contracts are personal service contracts where it is clearly impossible for him to delegate his work to another individual… nor is a 6’5″ stunt double martial artist available with a 7th degree black belt in Aikido.
Clearly hasn’t seen much of Seagal’s DTV releases these days.
