Judge in Mets kosher hot dog case recuses himself for fan cap 

A federal judge overseeing a kosher food vendor's lawsuit against the Mets recused himself from the case Tuesday apparently because the plaintiff's lawyer spotted him wearing a Mets hat outside the courthouse.

Brooklyn Magistrate Judge Andrew Carter said that he was stepping aside because he wanted to make sure there was no public perception that he was rooting for one side, a source told the Daily News.

The News reported Saturday that a lawyer for Kosher Foods Inc., which is suing the Mets forbarring the vendor from selling kosher franks at Citi Field during the Jewish Sabbath, expressed concern that the judge was wearing a Mets cap and a blue-and-orange tie.

Carter declined to comment.
