DiMaio Will Refile

"This is a big victory," said DiMaio, who said he is neutral in the presidential race. "As close as this election can be, these little votes can make a big difference in who could be the next president of the United States. That's why I'm anxious and ready to go. And the clock is really ticking."

A federal appeals court dismissed a lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee over the party's decision to strip Florida of its delegates to its national convention.

But the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in a ruling released Friday, said the lawsuit "raises a number of interesting and potentially significant questions," and gave the plaintiff an opening to amend and refile the lawsuit.

The plaintiff, Victor DiMaio, a Democratic Party activist from Tampa, Fla., said he would refile.
