    Default Cat called for jury duty

    Cat Called for Jury Duty – Neatorama


    "Sal Esposito of East Boston has been summoned for jury duty. He just might be excused for being a cat, but so far he is expected to serve. Salís owners Guy and Anna Esposito think his name may have been pulled from census records, where he was listed as a pet.

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

    Salís service date at Suffolk Superior Court is set for March 23. Anna said that if the issue isnít cleared up by then, she will simply have to bring the cat to court. "

    One purr: not guilty
    One hiss: guilty

    The faith in the US legal system's bureaucracy just rose after this article...

    It would be just a cute story except for this...this raises it to hilarious! Sal will probably be the foreman.

    That cat in that photo itself has a priceless look. It somehow musters even less faith from me than another cat might.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    I think that line is sort of the point of the story. Like it wouldn't be very funny is they just made a Census mistake that they cleared up. I think the funny part is that he actually has to serve.

    I think it's legit, some of the articles on it are from sources I recognize.

    I heard that the reason they denied the request is because Sal himself was not the one who filed the request.

    Good role models are that scare these days?

    Well, I suppose old Sal is decent. He just happens to be a little bit of a cat, and I don't know if following that suit pans out for your part in society.

    Crazy stuff can happen with these bureaucratic regulations.

    I recall a story of a woman in Spain who was registered as dead due to a fraudulent crime on the part of her brother. Many aspects of her life were impeded because she was officially dead. She went before a court (conspicuously alive) because she was being denied to the right to marry, because it's illegal to marry dead people. I do believe she was denied, at least the first time.
