Abstract: A topological space is said to belong to the class of Stegall (weakly Stegall) spaces if for every Baire (complete metric) space and minimal usco , is single-valued at some point of . 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 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 such that belongs to the class of weakly Stegall spaces but does not.
