FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A judge will not prevent the father of one of 17 people killed last year at a Florida high school from attending the deposition of a former school security monitor who claims the father is harassing him.

The Sun-Sentinel reported Tuesday that Andrew Pollack can attend the questioning session of Andrew Medina. Medina had sought an order keeping Pollack away, claiming he was fearful.

Medina says Pollack showed up at a park last week and threatened the former Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School monitor, who is a youth baseball coach.

Pollack’s daughter, Meadow, died in last February’s shooting at the school. Pollack is suing Medina, accusing him of negligence for not taking actions to stop shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz despite recognizing him going into a school building.
