WASHINGTON - The US State Department is proposing to release the second batch of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails on June 30, with additional releases every 60 days, according to court documents released on Tuesday.

But Ryan James, a lawyer for the plaintiff who sued for release of the emails under the US Freedom of Information Act, said the State Department should release new batches of them every two weeks.

A federal judge ordered the State Department to produce a plan by this week to release batches of Clinton's emails that were kept on her private server while she was secretary of state.

Clinton, the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, has come under criticism for using a private email account, hosted on a private server, instead of a government one for messages she sent and received as secretary of state.

The first batch of roughly 850 pages of emails was released on Friday and showed Clinton, who left the State Department in 2013, fretted over how she would be portrayed after the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.

In the filing on Tuesday with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, the State Department said it expected to complete the release of all 55,000 pages of Clinton emails by January 2016.
