Pictured above is IV Griner, a German Shepherd in New Jersey. Recently, her human, Barrett Griner IV, found a jury duty summons in his mail. It wasn't for him, but the dog.

An official with the Cumberland County court system said that this was the result of a computer error. Given the similarity between the names of the dog and human, it's an understandable one. The computer probably snatched up Griner's name and enumeration from available records, then reversed them.
Will IV have to serve on a jury? That's unclear, but Griner (the human) suggests that his dog would be a good pick to serve on a cat burglary case.
Maybe. This cat, who was summoned for jury duty and not excused for being a cat may also be a good pick.
