Let denote the sequence of polynomials orthogonal with respect to the non-discrete Sobolev inner product , where and with , . In this paper, we prove a Cohen type inequality for the Fourier expansion in terms of the orthogonal polynomials Necessary conditions for the norm convergence of such a Fourier expansion are given. Finally, the failure of almost everywhere convergence of the Fourier expansion of a function in terms of the orthogonal polynomials associated with the above Sobolev inner product is proved.
