One of my favorites. Extremely smart and a great judge in civil litigation! EDNC judges often defer substantial authority to magistrate judges, and Judge Webb is among those on whom the Article 3 judges rely, as evidenced not only by the ready acceptance of his proposed decisions/orders but also his committee appointments for EDNC work. Expects attorneys to be prepared and will take attorneys to task when they are not prepared -- he typically will not only have read all cited cases, but additional ones that he thinks my be pertinent, and will ask questions about them. He also expects counsel to meet deadlines or ask in advance for extensions; he does not like, and often will not grant, belated requests. Those who don't like him typically are those who came to his courtroom unprepared, or who submitted documents that weren't entirely accurate. EDNC judges, including Judge Webb, expect completely truthful filings in civil litigation and expect civility among counsel.
