First thing to note is that the plaintiffs have cases of their own and not a single common case.

A that they can appeal to when their cases are ------- The use of the present tense ‘are decided’ is not in appropriate since the appeals will be done well after the decision.

(B) to which to appeal after their cases have been ---- the best choice.

(C) for appealing if their case has been --- ‘their case’ is wrong
(D) To which they can appeal if their case is -----‘their case’ is wrong
(E) that their cases can appeal, if they have been --- absurd meaning saying that their cases can apple.

Modified the original question, option A was incorrect in the original one.

OA after some discussions.

The trick is that the sentence refers to the plaintiffs, the initial clause is just filler.

So the meat of the sentence is, "Because the Supreme Court has ruled X, plaintiffs in such cases fear that THEY will have no higher court blah blah"

Therefore, the correct option should be in plural form, C & D are out.

E says "that their cases can appeal" that's wrong. The cases are not appealing, the plaintiffs are..

A starts off on the correct note but ends with "when their cases are". In this case the use of "have been" is warranted since we are talking about something that will have an impact on the present

IMO D

...... higher court to which they can appeal if their case is .....
higher court is noun to be modified....
they refers to employee...

To which to appeal sounds a bit awkward but grammatically its correct. OA is B.
