Court Surprise: Giuliani Picked as
Juror No.1


In the suit, Johnson contends that he was scalded in a
shower in his apartment at 135th Street and Madison
Avenue on Feb. 16, 1995, as a result of a "defective,
hazardous and unsafe" hot water system and
"negligence" by the landlord. Johnson seeks $6 million
in damages, and his wife $1 million for the loss of her
husband's services.

No reporters were present for the voir dire, but people
who were present said the Mayor was asked whether
he was a landlord or a tenant. It was unclear what
answer he gave, but he might have noted that he owns
an apartment on the Upper East Side and is a tenant
at Gracie Mansion.
