Legal Question in Employment Law in Illinois

I am in litigation in Federal Court with my former Chinese employer over owing salary and a defamatory reference (I was recruited in the USA by a multinational Chinese company, and based in China).

The Federal Judge has ordered that I provide my Social Security number to the defense. At NO time did my Chinese employer ever use or require my Social Security number during my entire tenure with the company (the defendant).

Federal Rules of Procedure 26b states that the defense/court can request an information RELEVANT to a case. In no way is my Social Security number relevant to this case.

Why is the Judge NOT following the Federal Rules of procedure ?
