I filed a claim against two defendants, one was difficult to

I filed a claim against two defendants, one was difficult to serve and I got two different trial dates for each. I filed a motion to postpone to enable the second defendant served. In the process two trial dates appeared again while I tried to exploit all methods of serving allowed. The trial was presented to the court on the earlier date that I missed (was absent in court) and the case was dismissed. Can I appeal the dismissal as in a normal court ruling when I were in court for the ruling?

Question just for Ray: What would be the limits to an appeal

Question just for Ray:What would be the limits to an appeal in a County Court ruling that dismissed individuals (owners) of a corporation from personal negligence in a breach of contract, when the ruling is now more than 30 days old, but on the grounds of discovery and comments by the Court after that ruling where it admitted it never read the complaint, or looked at the exhibits? I believe interlocutory appeals are 30 days in civil, but the judge astonished the plaintiff by his ruling in a subsequent matter to strike an pre-suit letter to defendant as an exhibit in the complaint, because defense argued it was subject to confidential offers to settle, instead of the "demand letter" that it was. But added he totally had not read anything of the complaint or the exhibit, defending himself as having too much case load, and didn't want to be "prejudiced" by looking at the exhibits. The Plaintiff was left dumb-founded. Now he wants to appeal. Is it possible, or has too much time passed?
