    U.S. judge Thomas Wheeler has ordered that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke can be questioned in a lawsuit against the government filed by the former head of American International Group Inc. It is rare for a Fed chairman to be deposed in a lawsuit. But Judge Wheeler have said that he made an exception because Bernanke has firsthand knowledge of the government's decision to bail out AIG at the height of the financial crisis.
