Boston Cat Must Attend Jury Duty
From NYDailyNews.com -
Boston resident Sal Esposito has been called to jury duty, but there's one thing standing in the way of his ability to serve: He's a cat.
Massachusetts couple Anna and Guy Esposito received a jury duty summons for their feline friend this month, who they had listed as a household resident on the 2010 Census.
"Sal is a member of the family so I listed him on the last Census form under pets but there has clearly been a mix-up,"I read the hole thing and I said, 'Oh my God, how could he go, he's a cat?'"
Anna filed to have her pet disqualified from the service requirement on the grounds he is "unable to speak and understand English." She even included a letter from her vet explaining that Sal is not a human being but a "domestic short-haired neutered feline,".
The court rejected the request, and as things stand, Sal will have to report for duty to Suffolk Superior Crown Court in Boston.
