Washington (AP) -- A second federal judge said Tuesday he will allow a conservative legal group to seek more documents and depositions in a lawsuit over access to emails sent or received by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth issued an order Tuesday granting limited discovery to Judicial Watch. The group sued in 2014 over whether the State Department properly responded to public records requests related to Clinton's time as the nation's top diplomat.

Lambreth's order follows a similar one signed earlier this month by a different judge in another Judicial Watch case.

The Associated Press first reported last year that the Democratic presidential front-runner relied on a private email server located in the basement of her New York home to handle messages containing sensitive government information.
