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.

that they can appeal to when their cases are

to which to appeal after their cases have been

for appealing if their case has been

to which they can appeal if their case is

that their cases can appeal, if they have been

OA after some discussion....

Can you please try to explain your reasoning from Verb tense perspective?

Cheers

1. That is not required. eliminate A,E
2. For appealing is unidiomatic. it should be "appeal to". Eliminate C

This leaves B and D

Here two events are involved 1. decision by the LC 2. Appeal to the HC
therefore perfect tense is required. Hence B wins.

Notice this part: "plaintiffs in such cases fear that they will have no higher court"

Hence in the correct choice ' case decision' should have occurred in past relative to action 'fear'. Further, 'cases' is plural.

Hence Ans B it is.

This is already a good explanation. Let me add my two cents.

'...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.'
1. Since the action started in the past [decisions made in lower court] and continues into the future [will not have a higher court to appeal to ], a present perfect form is required.
2.
'...plaintiffs in such cases...' Since the cases here is plural, the corresponding use should also be plural.

Hence, (B)
