Federal prosecutors asked an appeals court Friday to deny former Qwest chief executive Joe Nacchio's latest bid to delay when he must report to prison.

A judge has already denied Nacchio's request to stay free on bail while he asks the U.S. Supreme Court to review his insider-trading conviction.  Nacchio appealed that decision to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this week.

On Friday, prosecutors filed documents opposing the request.
