Abstract: In this paper we give a sufficient condition on the class numbers of distinct quadratic imaginary fields so that on a given CM elliptic curve over $ \mathbb{Q}$ with fixed modular parameterization, the Heegner points associated to (the maximal orders of) these quadratic imaginary fields are linearly independent. This extends results of Rosen and Silverman from the non-CM to the CM case.
