Laurie Fine

The management at Belhurst Castle had no idea who Laurie Fine was or why she was booking their space when she scheduled a news conference for Wednesday morning.

"When Belhurst Castle agreed to the press conference, we were not aware of the ins and outs of the press conference or who this person was," said Kelly Towers Belhurst Castle Dining and Lodging manager. "Now we're a little reluctant - but, we're going to let it fly."

Laurie Fine is the wife of former Syracuse Orange associate head basketball coach Bernie Fine. She has retained a lawyer from Pittsburgh who is likely to announce a lawsuit on behalf of Laurie Fine. They will both be part of a news conference at Belhurst Castle Wednesday morning at 11:00. The Finger Lakes resort overlooks scenic Seneca Lake.
