A federal judge reportedly has recused himself from a lawsuit brought by a kosher vendor against the New York Mets.

Brooklyn Magistrate Judge Andrew Carter stepped down from the case after the lawyer for Kosher Foods Inc., which is suing the Mets for preventing the company from selling kosher hot dogs at CitiField on Friday nights and Saturday, saw him wearing a Mets cap outside of the courthouse, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

The newspaper had reported last weekend that the attorney for Kosher Foods had expressed concern to Carter over a possible bias in the case because the judge had been wearing the cap and a tie in the Mets’ colors, blue and orange.
