The defendants organised the GANDALF defence campaign. Three of the editors of Green Anarchist — Molland, Saxon Wood and Booth — were jailed for conspiracy to incite. All three were released on appeal. The presiding judge at the original trial was Justice David Selwood.


Since the collapse of the state's case against the GA 'editors', GA have discovered that despite their manipulation of the Gandalf Defendants Campaign, they had less support than before the trial. Counter Information have also issued a statement particularly attacking Steve Booth's offensive article 'The Irrationalists'. Here Booth argued in favour of attacks on the public such as the Oklahoma bombing and the AUM sarin attack where a deadly poison was spread through the Tokyo public transport system. Booth has since renounced the views he expressed in The Irrationalists. Generally Molland and Wood were not regarded as holding the more controversial views at one time espoused by Booth and Rogers. Rogers published a pamphlet Grassy Noel with an unsubstantiated attack on Molland for being a police informer.
