Officials from Pennzoil Co. and bank representatives gather around computer terminal in Houston to watch the arrival of $3 billion from Texaco Inc. The companies have fought a protracted legal battle after a Texas jury found in 1985 that Texaco unlawfully interfered with Pennzoil's earlier agreement to buy Getty Oil. Texaco filed for Chapter 11 in April 1987 to avoid having to post a bond for the full amount of the record $10.3 billion award won by Pennzoil.
