They say they must save her life first and foremost. They also establish that Zach could collect a $10 million insurance policy of Kendall died.

So she appears in court and testifies that she heard it directly from Kendall. Erica lashes out at Babe and tells the court that Babe would like Kendall to die so that she can take over Fusion and she's probably cut a deal with Zach to help him get his $10 million life insurance policy in exchange for his help in getting JR put away so that she can get sole custody of her son. The judge concludes that he needs to call a recess and will later come back with his decision.
