Geneva neighbors wonder why Laurie Fine will make her announcement at Belhurst Castle

The Meritage Ballroom at Belhurst Castle typically hosts wedding receptions or banquets. On Tuesday, the tables and chairs were being rearranged to host media from across the country at a Wednesday morning press conference .

Laurie Fine's attorney says she will address "scandalous lies" and there will be an explanation for why they choose Belhurst Castle and it's picturesque view of Seneca Lake as the backdrop.

"Syracuse is only 40 miles away and for this to come here is a little odd," said Geneva resident Gary Gladis.

Neighbors in Geneva were trying to figure out how their small city in the heart of the Finger Lakes region plays into the Bernie Fine scandal.

Laurie Fine's attorney has hinted that she will be filing a lawsuit. If that happens, Belhurst Castle and Geneva will be center stage on Wednesday.

"One of the biggest sports possibly scandals - I don't know if it's true or not, it's up in the air. I don't know what to believe," said Gladis.
