FRANKFURT/WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Reuters) - Deutsche Bank is freezing plans to create 250 new jobs in North Carolina after the state enacted a law last month that opponents say discriminates against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens.

Bill Cosby's wife of 52 years will have to submit to another day of questioning by lawyers for seven women who claim the comedian sexually assaulted them, but need not reveal intimate details of their marriage, a U.S. judge ruled on Tuesday. In rejecting Camille Cosby's request not have to have to participate in another deposition, U.S. Magistrate Judge David Hennessy told a lawyer for the seven women to limit his questioning to relevant topics, castigating him for crossing that line in a February deposition. Hennessy ruled that the new deposition will be limited to five hours and 45 minutes, with the two sides agreeing to hold it at a Boston hotel on Feb. 19.
The European Commission effectively delayed by three months on Tuesday any decision on whether to introduce visa requirements for U.S. and Canadian citizens by asking EU member states and the European Parliament to discuss their stance. The EU executive had signaled it was considering such a move on visas in the midst of difficult negotiations with the United States on a multi-billion dollar transatlantic trade pact. The European Union's visa policy is based on reciprocity and the United States and Canada currently require visas for citizens of several EU member states including Poland, Romania and Bulgaria.
