Regardless, this part of Kali's argument:

And no, the court is not going to find that Harlequin should have paid 70%, just because Amazon offered a high payment to self-publishers. That's patently absurd.
is clearly correct.

Amazon simply offer a storefront, it is up to the authors to do everything else.
My guess would be that the vast majority of sales that a Harlequin author gets are due to the Harlequin branding, rather than their own person reputation. Harlequin are entitled to charge for that branding.
