ALBANY — New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has recused himself in the investigation of whether Gov. David A. Paterson interfered with a domestic violence case involving a top aide.

Former Chief Judge Judith Kaye will also probe whether the governor lied about his intentions to pay for World Series tickets.

Cuomo is widely expected to run for governor and has come under criticism for investigating Paterson’s role in the case in which a woman accused a trusted Paterson adviser of roughing her up.

Some said a Cuomo probe would be a conflict of interest.
