We are the plaintiffs in a civil case . Just before the trial , the court dismissed the case . However , before the court dismissed , it ruled on some important issues . For example it ruled that neither side could introduce expert witness testimony . This is very bad , because this expert testimony is legitimately needed . We are going to appeal . If the appeal court remands the case for trial , does this order regarding experts and other orders stay in place ? Can we appeal all these orders along with the dismissal order ? All the orders , including the dismissal order were done without a written order , it's all contained in the transcript of the hearing only .
