(CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden reported for jury duty in Delaware Monday morning, but he was not chosen to sit on a jury.
The White House announced early Monday that Biden, who served for nearly four decades as a U.S. senator from Delaware, and who often retreats to his Wilmington family home on the weekends, would "participate in the standard jury selection process in his capacity as a private citizen" at the New Castle County Courthouse in Wilmington.
A White House official later confirmed that the vice president was released around noon along with the rest of his jury pool.
Just last week, Supreme Court justice Elena Kagan reported to the Washington, D.C. Superior Court for jury duty, but was also released from service and did not sit on any hearings.
