Detailed explanation please...OA after a few replies.

Because the Supreme Court has ruled that the prosecution in a job discrimination case must prove not only that the employer lied about the reasons for dismissal but also that those reasons were discriminatory, plaintiffs in such cases fear that they will have no higher court that they can appeal to when their cases are decided in lower courts.

A. that they can appeal to when their cases are
B. to which to appeal after their cases have been
C. for appealing if their case has been
D. to which they can appeal if their case is
E. that their cases can appeal, if they have been

OA from PR is B. Not much explanation other than verb-tense is
incorrect for A, C, D and E.

Here was my approach :-).

"Plaintiffs" and "cases" are mentioned in the non-underlined portion.
So you need they/their and "cases" respectively in the underlined
part. So, rule out C and D.

E changes the meaning.

Between A and B, I thought B had awkward construction. Also "appeal to"
sounded better than "appeal". So, I went with A.

A,B and E - construction is not proper.

C - "for + Verb-ing" should be followed by noun - This is Jayhawk's rule for one of my previous questions.

D is the one left out - So, I will go with this.

I think....D. to which they can appeal if their case is

My reasoning: because each plaintiff should only have one case. this should be an 'if' situation because it is theoretical. also, as this is an "if" theoretical situation, we should use the present tense "is"
