FILE – This Nov. 19, 2013 file photo shows New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman speaking at a news conference in New York. San Francisco’s city attorney and New York’s attorney general have joined forces to investigate allegations that Monster Beverage is marketing its highly caffeinated drinks to children. The recently revealed alliance was formed last month, around the same time a federal judge in California tossed out a lawsuit Monster filed seeking to stop San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera’s investigation of the energy drink maker.
