Avid Elixr R adjusted but rubbing

Basically my Avid Elixr R hydraulic rear brake is always on.

I re-tightened the retaining bolts with the lever depressed.

This didn't work so I used a flat screwdriver to try to wedge the pads apart.

This made the lever spongy and increased its travel. On one side of the rotor there is pad contact and on the other I doubt enough to put a sheet of paper through. :?

Any ideas?

update: busted lever. returned. luckily still under warranty.
