Apple on Thursday argued to receive a hearing from a full complement of the U.S. appeals court after a three-judge panel in October overturned a lower court's ruling that would have banned Samsung Electronics' Galaxy Nexus smartphone prior to a trial. In other patent news, a European Union official said regulators would file a formal complaint against Samsung for abusing antitrust rules in seeking injunctions against Apple products in pushing patent claims. And Nokia said today that it will receive a one-time award from Research In Motion as a settlement of their patent dispute.
