    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A Tennessee lawyer who was denied Arkansas delegates despite winning 42 percent of the vote in the Democratic Party's presidential primary has filed a notice of appeal in a lawsuit against the Arkansas Democratic Party.

    John Wolfe filed a notice of appeal in federal court Monday after a federal judge dismissed his lawsuit in late August.

    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 did not follow party rules.

    Wolfe didn't immediately respond to a phone message left Monday. He's claimed that denying him delegates disenfranchised the people who voted for him.

    Arkansas Democratic Party spokeswoman Candace Martin says Wolfe can't accept the fact that he broke the rules.
