Description
Toyota is under federal investigation for allegedly bribing Supreme Court judges in Thailand in an effort to overturn a $350 million tax judgment.

Also this week, we discuss an insurance suit that weighs whether the coronavirus or government orders were to blame for losses to a strip club; the DOJ recovering millions in ransom paid to hackers who halted operations of Colonial Pipeline; and a law student's homage to Legally Blonde that caught the eye of Reese Witherspoon.
