Open Court Fight to Oust James Hoffa WASHINGTON (UP)—A Federal Court battle opened today to dethrone James R. Hotfa as president-elect of the giant Teamsters Union. The suit was brought by 13 rebel rank-and-file Teamsters who charge that the bantam Hoffa was illegally elected at a stacked convention in Miami Beach, Fla., last October. There was a strong possibility that Hoffa, Dave Beck, the union's hold-over president, and other top- ranking teamster officials would | be called to testify. Start of the trial was delayed to permit attorneys for both sides to agree on the authenticity of documents the rank-and-file group expects to present as evidence.
