No, it was NOT misdeployed.  From the link you cite:

 Officials confirmed a launch anomaly in a statement late Friday.

"Complementary observations gathered after separation of the Galileo FOC M1 satellites on Soyuz Flight VS09 have highlighted a discrepancy between targeted and reached orbit," Arianespace, the French launch services company, said in a statement.

See?  It is a "launch anomaly", a "discrepancy".  Not a failure :-)
