Between B and E, vote E. B seems to lost information.

b)The supreme court has determined Richard Nixon to be liable for civil damages seven years after he was pardoned of any criminal charges.
c)Seven years after being pardoned of any criminal charges to arise from his tenure in office, the Supreme Court has determined Richard Nixon to be liable for civil damages--Dangling

I also pick E. B misses "that" making it sound that court has determined Richard Nixon, which does not make sense.

If I were to pick between B and E, I would pick E.

B uses has determined which is a Present Perfect Tense. One of the use of the Present Perfect Tense is to show an action when the time period is not finished. This makes B sounds that more types of charges will be determined against Richard Nixon.

B could be re-written as:

The Supreme Court determined Richard Nixon to be liable for civil damages seven years after he was pardoned of any criminal charges.
