LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A judge has dismissed a California real estate broker’s lawsuit over a Nebraska law requiring licensing to market Nebraska homes online.

Leslie Young’s lawsuit said that advertising “for sale by owner” homes online was constitutionally protected speech. The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Senior U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon (buh-TAL’-yuhn) disagreed in a ruling issued last week, saying the issue was regulation of conduct, not regulation of free speech because he found that Young had acted as an unlicensed broker.
