U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder appeared in a Washington courtroom on Tuesday for jury duty, but he did not make the cut.

Holder was among dozens of prospective jurors who listened to D.C. Superior Court Judge Stuart Nash describe a criminal case involving the robbery of a cell phone, The Washington Post reports.

The attorney general, a former Superior Court judge, has three FBI agents for protection. They waited outside the courtroom, the Post reports.

According to newspaper, Judge Nash greeted Holder when he was called to the bench. The attorney and prosecutor also spoke.

Holder greeted them before resting his forearm briefly on the judge’s bench. He then stepped backwards. Holder then laughed before giving a friendly pat to the defense attorney’s arm, the publication reports.

After Judge Nash and the attorneys interviewed Holder, the attorney general was dismissed from duty, the Post said.
