Dear Customer - If all of the other people you mentioned were in the courtroom I have no idea why your daughter's attorney would have told her to remain outside. That would be a question only he or she could answer since it must have been some legal strategy that the attorney thought would be best to obtain the best possible outcome. If your daughter is unhappy with the outcome she needs to file a complaint in the case and if she feels her attorney acted improperly she needs to file an ethics complaint with the Bar Association. I have included their website below. There is no legal reason I know of why her attorney would have told her to wait outside if the other party was going to be permitted to be in the court room. She really needs to discuss this with her attorney since there is no legal reason I know of why this occurred.
