SAN FRANCISCO — The federal judge overseeing Google Inc.’s fight with federal prosecutors over foreign-stored data expressed concerns Wednesday over the company’s continued refusal to comply with a search warrant in a criminal investigation.

U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg of the Northern District of California held off ruling on prosecutors’ request to sanction Google for failing to comply with his August decision ordering the tech giant to hand over the contents of 22 email accounts. Likewise, the judge didn’t indicate whether he’d grant the government’s request for an evidentiary hearing about Google’s decision to stop responding to search warrants for data stored abroad after a decision last year from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit found Microsoft didn’t have to hand-over foreign-stored emails.
