    LOS ANGELES (AP) — For most of the last 33 years, an Andy Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett has hung in the home of her longtime lover, Ryan O'Neal, and a jury's verdict Thursday ensures that is where it will stay.

    For nearly a month, O'Neal has been in a courtroom as lawyers for the University of Texas at Austin sought to gain possession of the portrait, arguing that Fawcett bequeathed the artwork to the school upon her death.

    O'Neal fought back and testified last week that the portrait was his closest remaining connection to Fawcett, who died in 2009. The actor's descriptions of talking to the portrait and feeling the presence of the "Charlie's Angels" actress were among the last words that jurors focused on, asking to hear his testimony again Thursday morning.

    Within 90 minutes of reviewing the testimony, the panel returned a 9-3 verdict in favor of O'Neal. The actor wasn't present for the jury's decision, but his sons Patrick and Redmond O'Neal clasped hands and hugged after hearing the result.

    I can still remember the poster of her in the red swimsuit hanging on the back of my brothers bedroom door. She had great hair. Happy for Ryan.
