Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Edito D’Amora:

Father Edito D’Amora was ordained in the Philippines to the Diocese of Dipolog in 1980, who also served in the Diocese of Orange.

In October 2010, his personnel file was released along with that of other priests involved in the 2008 San Diego settlement. He was named in at least one civil lawsuit. His current whereabouts and whether he has access to children are unknown, although it is believed that he has been living in Lake City, Florida since 2017.
