The New York Times reported that Cuomo is accusing them of deliberately mishandling their investigation of sexual harassment claims made against him by former and current government employees.
In his 48-page ethics complaint, Cuomo accused James of being "politically motivated" and having a "self-interest driven agenda,” the Associated Press reported.
According to the Associated Press, he also accused the two lawyers James hired to conduct the probe, Joon Kim and Anne Clark, of bias.
The news outlet reported that he filed the complaint with the Appellate Divisions of State Supreme Court and the Grievance Committees.
Cuomo, who has maintained his innocence, resigned last August after a report from the state attorney general found that he touched women inappropriately or sexually harassed them, the Associated Press reported.
According to the Associated Press, four prosecutors have publicly declined to pursue criminal charges against Cuomo over sexual harassment allegations since last January.
