Gay NY Man Gets Out Of Jury Duty By Claiming He’s A Second Class Citizen

Jonathan D. Lovitz, the musical performer and professional dating expert and star of LOGO’s upcoming series Set-Up Squad  was called for Jury During in NY.  During the voir dire, where lawyers select jurors from a larger pool the prospective jurors were asked who would not be impartial and Johnathan raised his hand and told the court that  ‘since I can’t get married or adopt a child in the state of New York, I can’t possibly be an impartial judge of a citizen when I am considered a second class one in the eyes of this justice system.’

NOTHING beats making a political statement and getting out of jury duty! 

BRAVO Johnathan!
