With a federal court ruling in its favor, ForSaleByOwner.com likely will pursue a more aggressive marketing strategy in California, according to Colby Sambrotto, chief operating officer for the company.

A federal judge ruled Nov. 19 in a U.S. District Court in Sacramento, Calif., that the state of California violated First Amendment rights in requiring Web sites to obtain a real estate broker’s license in order to display property listings.
