A federal judge asked the U.S. Internal Revenue Service for more information on efforts it made to recover missing email from the computer of an IRS official at the heart of a quarrel between Congress and the Obama administration over scrutiny of Tea Party organizations.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan’s order giving the IRS until Aug. 22 to come up with further details on what it did to retrieve e-mail from the malfunctioning computer of Lois Lerner signals his dissatisfaction with the agency’s earlier explanation, contained in an Aug. 11 filing.

The order comes in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the activist group Judicial Watch. The complaint seeks Lerner’s email and other communications concerning the processing of applications for tax-exempt status.

The case is Judicial Watch v. IRS, 13-cv-01559, U.S. District Court, District of Columbia .
