Obama showed up wearing a sport coat and dress shirt -- no tie --  as he waved at onlookers on his way inside the courthouse.

Though Obama would likely be one of the most famous potential jurors in his county this year, he is in line to be paid the same $17.20 a day that everyone else receives for reporting for jury duty.

However, it remains unclear whether or not Obama was selected to sit on a jury or if he was forced to succumb to watching old videos explaining the ins-and-outs of jury duty like other would-be jurors.
