The Suffolk County Supreme Court has thrown out a pending legal claim holding up the sale of the decrepit house at 6 Union Street in Sag Harbor, 27East reported. Charlotte Lisi filed the action claiming that she had a stake in the property one day before the buyers who won the house at a foreclosure auction were expecting the deal to close. Her son, Brandon Lisi, pleaded guilty in 2011 to two felonies for his role in a mortgage fraud scheme that targeted East End homes, and the Morpurgo House is one of his disputed properties. Its new owners may have to wait 30 days while Charlotte has an opportunity to appeal the judge’s opinion before the sale closes.[27East] — Cathaleen Chen
