MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker is part of a Milwaukee County jury that's hearing a personal injury lawsuit.

The governor wasn't picked to hear a murder trial, but was selected late Monday for the jury that will hear Carri and Michael Natarelli's personal injury lawsuit.

The governor says he has been called for jury duty twice before, once while he was serving in the state Assembly and once when he was Milwaukee County executive, but was not chosen for the cases.

The Journal Sentinel says Judge Kevin Martens told jurors the trial is expected to last two days. Walker's home is in the Milwaukee County community of Wauwatosa.
