Warhol portrait jury wraps first day of deliberation
December 18, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — A jury deciding the ownership of an Andy Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett concluded its first full day of deliberations on Tuesday.

The panel of six men and six women is considering whether to allow Ryan O’Neal to keep the portrait or if it belongs to the University of Texas at Austin.

Jurors received the case on Monday afternoon and have completed nearly five-and-a-half hours of deliberations.

The university is suing O’Neal to gain possession of the portrait, which it says should have been included in Fawcett’s gift of all her artwork to the school. Another nearly identical portrait was given to the university and hangs in its art museum.

O’Neal, however, says the artwork was a gift from Warhol and he should be allowed to keep it.

Opening statements began in the case on Nov. 25 and jurors heard from several witnesses who were close to Fawcett throughout her life.

Maybe, but they're still safe
We should do what we can to encourage use since they're less harmfull than cigarettes
Who cares, they're lame
