    Talking Cat summoned for jury duty

    kare11.com | Twin Cities, MN | Boston cat summoned for jury duty



    BOSTON -- A Boston family is trying to figure out how their pet cat was summoned for jury duty.

    "I said, Sal, what's this? You know, I don't believe it I was shocked," said Guy Esposito, Sal's owner.

    Sal's owners, Guy and Anna Esposito, think they may know the source of the mix up: Sal really is a member of the family, so on the last Census form, Anna Esposito listed him under "pets".

    "I just wrote 'Sal Esposito', scratched out the 'dog,' and wrote, 'cat,'" said Anna.

    Anna filed for Sal's disqualification of service. However, the jury commissioner was unmoved and denied the request.

    Sal's service date at Suffolk Superior Court is set for March 23.

    Anna said that if the issue isn't cleared up by then, she will simply have to bring the cat to court.

    I would just wait & haul him into court. He needs the learning experience.

    How the hell is a cat going to serve jury duty? It would be hilarious for them them to take the cat to court and embarrass the hell out that jury commissioner for being a moron.

    I think a murder case might be too much responsibility for a little cat. I hope they start him with an open & shut case!

    Sad thing is, this cat probably has more sense than a lot of jury members.
