German Shepherd Gets A Jury Summons

BRIDGETON, N.J. (April 16, 2014) Cumberland County, N.J., issued a jury summons for IV Griner, but it turned out that IV is a 5-year-old German shepherd, rather than a person.

The dog’s owner told KYW-TV in Philadelphia he sorted out the confusion soon after the summons arrived at his home in Bridgeton, N.J.

Barrett Griner IV uses the Roman numeral for four in his name and named his dog using the letters "I'' and "V."

The county's judiciary coordinator says the computer likely mistook the Roman numeral for Griner's first name and mailed the summons bearing the dog’s name instead of his.
