(AP) A federal judge has upheld as constitutional a Los Angeles County law requiring adult film performers to wear condoms.


Friday's ruling is a setback to porn producers who filed a lawsuit to block the implementation of the Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Act, or Measure B, which was approved by voters last November.


In the ruling, U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson wrote that the AIDS Healthcare Foundation presented sufficient evidence of the health risks the measure seeks to reduce. He said the law seeks to alleviate those harmed in a direct and material way.


The decision was cheered by the nonprofit AIDS Healthcare Foundation, one of the sponsors of the measure. The foundation was granted "intervener" status to defend the law against the porn industry's lawsuit.
