KQED Newsroom goes on the road to UC Hastings College of the Law to discuss the week’s big political and legal news. Yesterday, Senate Republicans released their long-awaited health care reform bill, while earlier in the week, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to hear a case on political redistricting. Also, a closely-watched congressional race in Georgia sent ripples across the country, highlighting the role of California and exposing deepening divisions in the Democratic party.

Last week, KQED experienced a temporary outage when suspicious activity was observed on several computers. And earlier this week, automaker Honda temporarily halted production at a facility in Japan after discovering Ransomware, a malicious software, on its computer systems. These incidents come on the heels of a large scale computer attack in May that targeted companies in at least 150 countries worldwide and affected hundreds of thousands of computers.
