Apple has filed a petition with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit following the courts reversal of a $120 million jury verdict against Samsung, reports Reuters. Apple says the three-judge panel violated the U.S. Constitution.

In a petition for rehearing en banc filed on Monday with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit by Apple's attorney William Lee of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, the company said the panel used materials that it researched itself and were not part of the trial court record to overturn the infringement verdict. This undermined Apple's Seventh Amendment right to have a jury, and not an appellate court, decide the facts of the case, the company said.

This is just the latest in a lengthy legal battle between Apple and Samsung. Notably, after refusing to hear Apple's appeal in the e-Books pricing fixing case, the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear Samsung's appeal over a $548 million patent infringement verdict awarded to Apple.
