MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor is temporarily setting aside his daytime duties to serve on a jury in Mankato.

The Free Press reports Taylor is among a panel of 12 jurors and one alternate chosen to hear a sexual assault case.

It’s not the first time the billionaire team owner and printing magnate has served on a jury.

Taylor told the defense attorney during jury selection that he was on two previous juries — including one for a murder about 30 years ago.
