Hanna v. Salazar is a 2013 New Mexico court case requesting that the Santa Fe County Clerk be required to issue a marriage license to Alexander Hanna and Yon Hudson.

The case was filed on June 6, 2013, in New Mexico's First Judicial District Court in Santa Fe County. It was initially assigned to Judge Francis J. Mathew under the case number D-101-CV-2013-1525. On June 10, Judge Mathew was peremptorily excused and the case was reassigned to Judge Raymond Ortiz of Division III.

On June 27, the petitioners filed a petition for a writ of mandamus with the state Supreme Court and motioned the district court to dismiss the case without prejudice. On July 3, the district court case was dismissed.

The case is currently pending in the state Supreme Court. It is likely that the petitioners will file a reply brief to answer the defenses raised in the responses from the respondents and the amici state legislators before the Supreme Court considers the petition.
