The initial order, Mr. Vigilante said in a separate account CNN published online, demanded data that would cover more than 30,000 emails, including about 26,000 that were internal and so could not have had anything to do with a leak investigation.
In September, the network asked a court to narrow the scope of the order, he said.
Two weeks later, Mr. Vigilante said, she ordered CNN to comply with the original, full demand for Ms. Starr’s email records.
In November, the network appealed that decision, and the following month Judge Anthony Trenga, a district court judge, held a hearing and then directed the department to narrow the scope of its request.
The network also said it did not know that Ms. Starr’s phone records and data from her personal email account had separately been seized until the Justice Department notified her in May.
