An Oregon lawyer the FBI wrongly arrested after the 2004 Madrid terrorist bombings because of a misidentified fingerprint has settled part of his lawsuit against the U.S. government for $2 million. Brandon Mayfield, who was detained for two weeks in 2004, maintained that he was arrested because of his Muslim faith. The local FBI office said Wednesday that it was proud of its work in the case -- other than the fingerprint error.
