Abstract: A topological space $X$ is said to belong to the class of Stegall (weakly Stegall) spaces if for every Baire (complete metric) space $B$ and minimal usco $\varphi:B\rightarrow 2^{X}$, $\varphi$ is single-valued at some point of $B$. In this paper we show that under some additional set-theoretic assumptions that are equiconsistent with the existence of a measurable cardinal there is a Banach space $X$ whose dual, equipped with the weak$^*$ topology, is in the class of weakly Stegall spaces but not in the class of Stegall spaces. This paper also contains an example of a compact space $K$ such that $K$ belongs to the class of weakly Stegall spaces but $(C(K)^*,\mbox{weak$^*$ })$ does not.
