(Pleasant Grove-AP) -- A federal judge tells the City of Pleasant Grove to stop enforcing an ordinance putting undue requirements on door-to-door peddlers.

The law requires the salesmen to be fingerprinted, post a bond and pay a fee before they start selling.

The order by U-S District Judge Tena Campbell is the second in a week that bars a Utah municipality from enforcing a door-to-door sales regulation.

An injunction against Kaysville was handed down last Thursday.

The laws are being challenged by Kirby vacuum dealers.

The dealers contend that the Pleasant Grove and Kaysville ordinances, along with one in Midway, are unconstitutional.

Their lawsuits against the cities are pending.
