Abstract: The resolution of conﬂict of values between public and private interests is particularly relevant in civil procedural relations. Consequently, it is necessary to properly assess this conﬂict and ﬁnd appropriate ways to resolve it. Since the right to a public hearing is not an absolute right, it may be restricted for legitimate purposes, including the secrecy of private life. However, the public interest might be so high in certain cases that it exceeds the obligation of conﬁdentiality. The point is that the conﬂict of private and public interests is resolved considering the speciﬁc circumstances, which in each case are different but relate to the weighing of the good and the principle of proportionality.
