A federal judge said it "may be necessary" to depose Hillary Clinton about her personal e-mail server, in a freedom-of-information lawsuit over the employment of aide Huma Abedin, NBC News reported.
Federal District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the observation about the arrangement that allowed Abedin to do outside work while she was working for Clinton at the State Department.
The question in the lawsuit is a narrow one: did the State Department do everything legally required when it searched for documents, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, about the Abedin employment arrangement?

A Mill Valley, California doctor’s office became Ground Zero for all-things Prince on Wednesday, a day after a newspaper reported that the late pop artist had been trying to get drug recovery help from him the day before he died.
But Dr. Howard Kornfeld, who runs “Recovery Without Walls,” did not answer the door or phone at his practice, which became a media stakeout in the affluent Marin County city. News outlets from NBC News to Extra were there, all trying to get an interview with the man who reportedly was trying to help Prince overcome his problems.
"Dr. Kornfeld felt his mission was a life-saving mission," the doctor's attorney William Mauzy said. "He felt it to be urgent."

It gives new meaning to "deer in the headlights."
A New York State Department of Environmental Conservation officer rescued a deer after the critter got its head stuck in a light globe on Long Island.
Conservation Officer Jeff Hull went to check on the deer after he received a call Tuesday morning.
Hull found the deer with its head stuck inside of a light globe that had been lying in the woods of Centereach since the previous night.
With the Obama administration counting down its final year, many Democrats are finding less to like about the president's health care law, unsure about its place among their party's achievements.
Sen. Bernie Sanders' call for "Medicare for all" seems to have rekindled aspirations for bigger changes beyond "Obamacare." That poses a challenge for Hillary Clinton, who has argued that the health care law is working and the nation should build on it, not start over.
Two recent polls have shown an uptick in negative ratings of the Affordable Care Act, or ACA, and the shifting sentiments seem to come from Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents. For example, in the latest installment of the Kaiser Family Foundation health care poll, the share of Democrats with unfavorable views increased by 6 percentage points.
The 2017 Bentley Bentayga will be the most expensive SUV in the U.S. with a base price of $229,000, NBC News reported.
It's being billed as "the fastest, most powerful, most luxurious, most exclusive SUV in the world." Add the long list of accessories and some buyers are likely to double that figure. An optional Breitling clock alone is listed at $160,000.
Within the next few years, the world's most exclusive automotive manufacturers will be launching SUVs of their own, including the likes of Lamborghini, Aston Martin and even Rolls-Royce. Even as U.S. auto sales surge to record levels, the market share of so-called light trucks, including pickups, minivans and SUVs, has also climbed to an all-time high. The shift is happening at every price level, from entry level to the market's most rarefied segments.

Doug O'Neill was all smiles after early 3-1 favorite Nyquist drew the No. 13 post for the 142nd Kentucky Derby.
The number with an unlucky reputation didn't faze the trainer. In fact, it brought back good memories.
Nyquist left from the same spot when he won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile last year at Keeneland, part of his 7-0 career record.
The Powerball jackpot has grown even larger.
There was no jackpot winner in Wednesday night's drawing, increasing the prize from $348 million to an estimated $415 million.
While that's not chump change, it's a far cry from the $1.6 billion Powerball prize shared by three winning lottery ticketholders in January, the largest ever jackpot draw in the world. No one has won the full jackpot since March 2.
Powerball says the odds of winning the top prize are one in more than 292 million.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich, the last of Donald Trump's rivals for the Republican nomination, suspended his presidential campaign Wednesday.
"The Lord has a purpose for me as he has for everyone, and as I suspend my campaign today, I have renewed faith, deeper faith, that the Lord will show me the way forward and fulfill the purpose of my life," Kasich said in Columbus.
Kasich, 63, launched his campaign last summer, the 16th Republican to join the field.
A jury found Steven Briel guilty of first-degree murder, strangulation and abduction in the death of a University of Mary Washington student last year.
Grace Mann, 20, was killed April 17, 2015, at the Fredericksburg, Virginia, home she shared with Briel and two other roommates.
The jury has recommended Briel be sentenced to life in prison with an additional 11 years.
Much of the courtroom was in tears during the verdict and jurors passed tissues to one another.
Tractor trailers, many emblazoned with soda name brands on their sides, surrounded Philadelphia City Hall two hours before a public hearing Wednesday evening on Mayor Jim Kenney's proposed "soda tax."
The drivers were joined by other groups who objected to the tax, including corner store coalitions and beverage distributors, which rely on soda and other sugary drinks for revenue.
Most of the organizations and businesses against Kenney's proposed 3-cents-per-ounce tax on sugary drinks are part of an umbrella group called Philadelphians Against the Grocery Tax Coalition.
A New Hampshire business owner says vehicles outside are covered in human ashes because of a crematorium next door.
Doug Frederick, owner of the Motorcycle Museum in Meredith, said the ashes come from the chimney of the Mayhew Funeral Home.
"To be thinking of wiping up someone's human remains, it's just disgusting," said Leslyee Frederick, Doug's wife. The owner of the crematorium, however, said "We have received no indication of violations of any law or regulation."
The mother of a Boston firefighter was forced to jump from her burning home in the city's Dorchester neighborhood on Wednesday.
Her son rushed to her house as soon as he heard the call but only arrived after Regina Robinson was safely on the ground, thanks to a man doing a gutter estimate at a neighbor's home who spotted the flames pouring from her home and hearing her frantic screams.
Robinson said she was scared. Black smoke was filling her hallway, and "there was no other way but to go out that window."
Robinson jumped to the ground from a landing right below the window.
Former U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett, of Utah, who shied away from the spotlight but earned a reputation as someone who knew how to get things done in Washington, has died. He was 82.
Bennett assistant Tara Tanner said he died Wednesday from complications of pancreatic cancer and a recent stroke.
The Republican was first elected in 1992 and was widely seen at home as politically moderate, which at times put him at odds with Utah's highly conservative Republican base. His middle-of-the-road reputation led to his ouster in 2010 at the state convention by delegates fueled by tea party anger.
