Lucille Marie Gordon can't serve jury duty

They got her name from the Kennel Club rather than the electoral roll. An easy mistake to make.

According to the Sacramento Supreme Court, Lucille is a 38-year old woman, living in Carmichael, California. They've called her up for jury duty twice in the last year, and are looking for a reason for why she shouldn't serve this second time - and they don't just want the standard rubbish excuses.

The rest of the Gordon family have a very good one: she's a dog. "I guess she could [serve as a juror]", reckoned Caryn Gordon, "but if you had a dog-and-cat case, I don't think Lucy could be impartial."
