CHICAGO -- Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel suffered a setback that many would be happy with: He was dismissed from jury duty.

On Tuesday morning, the mayor reported for jury duty at the Richard J. Daley Center. After waiting to be called and even taking in a movie called "How to Be a Juror," Emanuel was told his services were no longer required.

Emanuel spokeswoman Sarah Hamilton says the mayor and the other people who were on the same juror panel were told they could go home because more than enough people had shown up for jury duty.
