East Boston resident Sal Esposito has been summoned for jury duty. There’s just one problem: Sal is a cat.

This Boston cat has been called for jury duty and will report to the court as required by law.

The issue arose after Sal’s owners, Anna and Guy Esposito, listed him on the last U.S. Census under “pet.” Residents are submitted to the list by street address and Sal Esposito may have gotten mixed in with his human neighbors.

But Sal’s owners tried to have him disqualified due to his inability to speak or understand English, but were denied. Unless the matter is resolved, Anna Esposito said she will take the feline to court to perform his civic duty on March 23.

      since a number of news sources just ran the article, it seems like the article linked to here might have been mis-dated with 2010 instead of 2011.
