IMHO,

'cases' is what I'd like to look at...

A, B & E remain:

'To appeal' is the usage...

A & B remain:

'to which to appeal' - I don't know if I misread this, but I've never seen this usage and it makes much little sense in the context as well.

IMHO -A

Best,
...

Weird :( where is my post where I said (B) before to see the OA ??? mah :( :(

Anyway, this sentence was tough (in sentence like this too long try to eliminate filler information) but

A) Plaintiffs in such case that they will have no higher court that they can appeal......sorry where is the SENSE of this sentence ?? completely wrong

B) Correct - convey a clear and straightfoward meaning of this long sentence

C) for appealing......is incorrect and then the use of IF (we use IF in dubitative phrases) why ???

D) even worse

E) here we have: another that (for what is here I do not know), a comma to separate clause (for what ??? ) and then IF (for what ??? ))

So the first statemet says: the supreme court ruled something OUT (on this issue problem you can not discuss or appeal for NO reason).......then plaintiffs have fear to have no one to appeal (the supreme court) is such cases decided in lower court.

This is the real meaning of the sentence.

You can rule out the other options only on these bases ;) nothing else

Answer is B.

Reasons:
A-incorrect: Wrong verb-are; sentence is awkward & wordy in using that 'that they' twice
B-correct: by POE
C-incorrect: all plaintiffs cant have only 1 case; cases should be used.
D-incorrect: same reason as that of C
E-incorrect: cases cant appeal
