SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A federal judge has denied a Salt Lake concert promoter's request for a temporary restraining order.

The restraining order would have prevented Utah County officials from enforcing an ordinance that requires permits for large gatherings.

The concert promoter, Uprock Incorporation, asked for the order as part of its civil lawsuit against the county.

The Utah County sheriff's office shut down Uprock concerts in July and August before the 12-hour time limit granted under county permits had expired. Uprock officials say they obtained mass-gathering permits for both events from the county health department.

The judge said in his ruling that Uprock failed to meet four requirements necessary to obtain a restraining order. The judge also said Utah County had grounds to shut down the event because Uprock failed to comply with some specific requirements under the permit.
