A judge has ruled that the L.A. Zoo can move forward with its plan to open a controversial new elephant exhibit scheduled to debut on Dec. 16, reports KTLA. However, the lawsuit to stop the expansion filed by late actor Robert Culp will also move forward.

Initially dismissed, Culp and animal rights activists filed the lawsuit in August 2007 claiming the habitat was too small for three elephants.
