TV One's Bobbi Kristina isn't out of the woods. Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina's father, filed a suit in early September seeking to block the release of the TV movie.

Now, a judge has set a date to determine if the film will temporarily be blocked. Page Six reports that both parties will appear in court Sept. 29 to address Brown's claims that the film portrays him in a false light as a neglectful father. 

Brown is seeking to have the film permanently stopped and $2 million in damages, up from the original $1 million demand.
