Columbus Center foes try appeal.

Opponents of the Columbus Center have made a decision to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court said their counsel last.

"We are going to appeal to the 'Supremes,' Jerry H. Goldfeder said. "We have a position that we would like vindicated." Goldfeder, together with co-counsel John Van Der Tuin, represent the coalition of community groups and individual who have been fighting the construction of a 1.9 million square foot 57-story tower since an even taller and larger structure was proposed in 1985.

"We assumed they would appeal," said Robert E. Selsam, vice president of Boston Properties. "There are a few more chapters to be written yet and as Yogi Berra said, 'when its over, it's over."'

While the papers will not be filed for "a couple of weeks," Goldfeder did say that 95 percent of the cases that make a certiorari application to the U.S. Supreme Court get turned down.
