The retired judge investigating Gov. David A. Paterson’s intervention in a domestic violence case involving a former top aide will not recommend any charges against the governor, according to a person with knowledge of the case.
Instead, the judge, Judith S. Kaye, the former chief judge of the New York State Court of Appeals, found that Paterson had engaged in “inappropriate conduct” in his contact with the victim in the case, according to a second person with knowledge of the case. Ms. Kaye is expected to release the results of her four-month investigation into Mr. Paterson on Wednesday afternoon.
