    Your question makes no sense. Dismissals are not appealed. But lets assume your question was just poorly asked, and what you ,meant to ask is, "can a prosecutor tell the press and others about more accusers coming forward without violating attorney client privilege? The answer is YES because the accused is not a client of the prosecution, thus enjoys no attorney client privilege.

    The FACT others have made similar accusations IS NOT a private communication between an attorney and their client.

    As this IS NOT an issue of attorney client privilege at all, it can't be a violation of such privilege.
