Plaintiff Pinnacle Alliance Group, LLC (“Pinnacle”) owns the copyright on architectural plans and designs for a senior housing facility originally planned for Sisters, Oregon. In 2011, after spending upwards of $700,000 studying the site and preparing original layouts, Pinnacle submitted their plans to the City of Sisters for review and approval. The plans were also submitted to Ageia Health Services during negotiations for Ageia to serve as the management company for the future senior center. In 2013, Pinnacle lost its opportunity to develop the site and now they allege that Defendant Ambient Architecture (d/b/a Ascent) obtained the copyrighted blueprints. Exhibit A is some of the Pinnacle plan and Exhibit B is the plan that Ascent prepared for a different developer. Pinnacle is asking for $700,000, to cover the money already spent, as well as all profits that Ascent earned on this project.
