A federal judge has barred Utah from enforcing a new sex offender-registry law, pending the outcome of a suit that could decide whether the law is constitutional.

The suit claims the requirements of the law are a violation of one's right to privacy.

The law, known as House Bill 34, requires registered sex offenders to turn over to the Department of Corrections their passwords to social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook.
