It exists indeed a way for doing that.

Place this handler in the datagrid group's script:

on SortDataGridColumn pColumn
end SortDataGridColumn

Remaining it empty will disable the sorting capability of the datagrid.

For disable sorting of a specific column, just don't pass the
SortDataGridColumn message for it.
Example for a column "Name":

on SortDataGridColumn pColumn
  if pColumn is "Name"
    --- doNothing
    pass SortDataGridColumn
  end if
end SortDataGridColumn
