Court dismisses John Wolfe's delegate appeal

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A federal appeals court has dismissed the appeal of a Tennessee lawyer who was denied Arkansas delegates despite winning 42% of the vote in the Democratic Party's presidential primary.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed John Wolfe's appeal on Wednesday, the day after President Barack Obama was re-elected.

The court says Wolfe didn't respond to an order last month.

Wolfe filed a notice of appeal in federal court last month after a federal judge dismissed his lawsuit against the Arkansas Democratic Party.

The judge said Wolfe couldn't prove that the state party violated his rights when it refused to award him any delegates.

The party says Wolfe didn't follow party rules.

Wolfe didn't respond to a phone message left Wednesday.
