Same-sex marriage peyton manning dating history licenses to be issued in Santa Fe County peyton manning dating history (2013)

On August 22, 2013, Judge Singleton became the first New Mexico judge to rule that same-sex couples can be married. The judge wrote in her order:

[R]eading a sex or sexual orientation requirement into the laws of New Mexico violates the state constitution, which mandates that ‘equality of rights under law shall not be denied on account of the sex of any person.’

The order came as a result of a lawsuit filed by Alexander Hanna and Yon Hudson. Judge Singleton ordered the County Clerk Geraldine Salazar to issue the couple a marriage license, which Salazar, as a self-proclaimed supporter of same-sex marriage was happy to do. Commissioner Liz Stefanics, a former state senator, and Linda Siegle became the first gay couple to get a marriage license in. They were followed by Hanna and Hudson.

The issue of gay marriage also surfaced in other New Mexico courts around the same time. The ruled on August 22, the same day as Judge Singleton's ruling, that a photography company could not refuse to photograph a lesbian wedding. On August 21, Doña Ana County Clerk Lynn Ellins decided on his own to start issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Following Judge Singleton's decision in Santa Fe County, District Judge made a similar ruling in on August 26, arguing that denying same-sex marriage amounts to discrimination based on sexual orientation, which the forbids.

The rulings of Judge Singleton and Judge Malott, however, affected only the counties within their jurisdiction. New Mexico law does not currently ban same-sex marriage, nor does it explicitly approve it. The attorney general's office interpreted the law as prohibitive of gay marriage, but earlier 2013, the Santa Fe City Council passed a resolution recognizing gay marriage as legal.

Statewide license investigation (2011)

In September 2011, following the return of undeliverable documents, Singleton authorized the state to investigate whether foreign nationals were still living in New Mexico, through the Residency Recertification Program. The state sent letters to 10,000 foreign nationals who hold driver's licenses. A lawsuit is pending that challenges the scope of the investigation, with the governor's administration and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund at odds.

On August 31, 2011, Singleton issued a temporary restraining order against the administration.
