Abstract: In 1977, Béaver and Cook [1] introduced the notion of regularity of states on quantum logics. They presented a generalization of Alexandroff theorem: each regular finitely additive state on a quantum logic is countably additive. Recently, Dvurečenskij, Neubrunn, and Pulmannová [2] observed an incorrectness in the original proof and doubted thus the validity of the result. We construct here a counterexample.
