NEWARK -- Saying that talks at resolving a statewide
backlog in parole hearings have broken down, an
advocate for inmates wants a federal judge to appoint a
monitor to oversee the system.

More than 3,400 inmates are waiting for the mandatory
review, according to the latest state estimate. Most are
at least six months behind and some nearly five years
late, advocates said.
