Abstract: Let $ (\Omega, \mathcal{A}, \mu)$ be a probability space and let $ \{ {\mathcal{B}_i}\} _{i = 1}^\infty $ be an increasing sequence of subsigma algebras of $ \mathcal{A}$. Let $ A = {L_\infty }(\Omega, \mathcal{A}, \mu)$, let $ {B_i} = {L_\infty }(\Omega ,{\mathcal{B}_i},\mu )$, and let $ f \in A$. Let $ {f_i}$ denote the best best $ {L_\infty }$-approximation to $ f$ by elements of $ {B_i}$. It is shown that $ {\lim _i}{f_i}(x)$ exists a.e.
