— Chelsea Clinton has been dismissed from jury duty in New York after serving for just one day.

The daughter of the former president and ex-secretary of state showed up for jury duty at a Manhattan state courthouse on Tuesday, but she was not selected to serve on a trial.

The 34-year-old Clinton, who commands as much as $75,000 per speech, announced she was pregnant with her first child in April.

Last week, pop singer Madonna did a brief stint in jury duty at the same courthouse. She was dismissed after about two hours.
