A San Mateo County judge has ruled against environmentalists and will allow a developer to build homes on San Bruno Mountain.

The San Bruno Mountain Watch filed a suit claiming the project would threaten an endangered butterfly --- the Callippe Silverspot.

However, in her ruling the judge cited a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service report that said the subdivision wouldn't put the butterfly at risk.

Mountain Watch says it may appeal.
