SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham says a retired judge who presided over multiple landmark cases in New Mexico has died.

Lujan Grisham announced Judge Sarah Singleton's death in an email Friday. A spokesman for the courts confirmed she died on Thursday.

The governor said she was "incredibly saddened by Singleton's passing," and called her a "dedicated jurist."

Singleton had been a judge in New Mexico's First Judicial District, which handles cases from Santa Fe, Rio Arriba and Los Alamos counties.

Singleton was remembered by the governor as being the first New Mexico judge to rule in favor of gay marriage in 2013.

Last year, Singleton ruled that New Mexico was not meeting its constitutional obligations to provide an adequate education.
