The judge in Kobe Bryant's sexual assault case rejects arguments that Colorado's rape-shield law is unconstitutional.
Defense attorney Hal Haddon argued that the law, when applied in combination with another, violates Bryant's right to equal protection.
The rape-shield law generally bars defense attorneys from using information about alleged assault victims' sexual history unless a judge determines the information is relevant.
The law has withstood other challenges since it took effect in the mid 1970s.
Haddon argued that under another state law, a defendant's sexual history is presumed to be relevant and is admissible at trial.
State District Judge Terry Ruckriegle says Bryant's sexual history won't be brought up in court, making that argument irrelevant.
