(Denver-AP) -- Exotic dancers in South Salt Lake, Utah, lost a round in their battle with the city today when a federal appeals court refused to block an ordinance that bans all-nude dancing.

Nine dancers had sought to block the ordinance from going into effect while they sued the city. The City Council adopted an ordinance in March 2001 that requires dancers to wear G-strings and pasties.

The tenth U-S Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver upheld a lower court's ruling that denied a preliminary injunction, which would have allowed the dancers to perform nude while the ordinance is challenged in court.

The ruling does not affect the dancers' lawsuit itself.
