Attorney Brandon Mayfield was jailed for two weeks after the government incorrectly matched his fingerprint to one found on detonators near the scene of a bombing in Madrid, Spain. It now turns out that the FBI performed a secret search of his house under provisions of the Patriot Act. In response to a letter from his attorneys, the Justice Department admitted to seizing three hard drives, taking several DNA samples, taking 335 photographs of his personal possessions and performing other "physical searches." Mayfield's attorneys are asking for more information, such as the exact nature of the photographs and how the DNA samples were analyzed.
