Is the Term “Judicial Activist” of Any Use as a Jurisprudential Label?

I don’t think so: as far I can discern the phrase as commonly used means nothing more specific than “a judge who strikes down laws that I [the speaker] think should be upheld.”  Ed Whelan and Gerald Bradley present (somewhat) different views at Bench Memos.
