LAWFUEL – The Law News Network – LawFuel.com’s lead story from the Seattle Times sees Attorney General Alberto Gonzales acknowledge for the first time that FBI agents used provisions of the Patriot Act during their investigation last year of a Portland attorney who was wrongly jailed for two weeks on suspicion of involvement in the Madrid train bombings.

The Patriot Act allows for covert searches of homes, without conventional search warrants.
