Jury Duty

News sources including NPR, the Daily Mail, and the New York Daily News have recently reported on Sal Esposito, who was recently summoned to appear for jury duty in Suffolk (Boston) Superior Crown Court.  Sal, however, is a cat.

Sal's owners objected to the summons and requested Sal's dismissal on the ground that Sal is "unable to speak and understand English," and also included with their request a letter from their veterinarian stating that Sal is, in fact, a feline.

The Superior Court rejected Sal's request for dismissal and Sal is currently expected to appear in court on March 23.

I wonder what the security guards will think when Sal shows up.
