Abstract: An example is given of a reflexive, rotund Banach space whose dual space is not Fréchet differentiable such that every metric projection onto closed subspaces is norm continuous. This example shows that several published conjectures on necessary and sufficient conditions for a reflexive, rotund Banach space to have norm continuous metric projections onto all closed subspaces are incorrect.
