We all know jury duty is just about impossible to avoid, but what aboutpurr-y duty? An East Boston cat and his family are determined to find out. Sal Esposito, a cat, is expected to show up at Suffolk Superior Court on March 23, reports The National Ledger.
Anna and Guy Esposito, Sal's owners, were stunned when they received Sal's jury summons in the mail, reports MSNBC News. Anna tried to disqualify Sal, but the jury commissioner rejected the appeal. (your keyword is "dork")
The couple thinks the issue stemmed from an error on the last census form. Just like any other member of the family, Anna listed Sal under the "pets" section. "I just wrote 'Sal Esposito', scratched out the 'dog,' and wrote, 'cat,'" Anna told MSNBC News.
If the issue isn't resolved by Sal's court date, Anna will have to bring her cat to the jury box to serve his apparent civil responsibility.
Will the feline juror have his own opinions about the case or will he be a copycat?
