Bloomberg's day in court

The New York Times' metro blog City Room chronicled Mayor Michael Bloomberg's first day of jury duty, in which he was dismissed as a potential juror in an asbestos case.

During the review of prospective jurors when an attorney came upon Bloomberg."Mr. Mayor, how are you?" ... "Don't have to ask much. Your life is an open book."
Mr. Long asked whether jurors might give the mayor special leeway because of his position. The mayor replied, "I'm one voice out of six, but I have a strong personality. You'd have to ask them."
