HR told me I couldn't ask such questions without proving they were useful first.

Basically a scientific experiment, have someone else ask and grade the questions, but those results were not considered for hire/nohire. Then 6 months after a bunch of people were hired we pull the results of the test and compare to their performance reviews. If the questions were a good predictor or future success we could use them on future interviews.

The overhead of this was more than we were willing to pay so we went back to HR's allowed questions.
