Along with Amiens and Toulouse, who were relegated due to the early end to proceedings, Lyon have vowed to fight the move through the courts, and Aulas, who has made no secret of his fervent opposition, did not mince his words as he gears up to state his club's case.
"[A restart]. That is what we are going to ask for in court tomorrow," he explained on Wednesday to RMC ahead of the hearing.
"The National Court will have to judge on the issue of returning to action and the way in which the stoppage came about.
"I had a meeting this afternoon with Nasser Al-Khelaifi and the ECA, the association of European clubs and the procedure proposed by UEFA is the one that we can follow today: return to training now and play the matches in three or four weeks."
Aulas, whose bid to overturn the previous ruling is considered to have little chance of succeeding, went on to suggest that he would hold the French state itself responsible should he fail.
"It was the state which ordered the end of activities, so therefore they are responsible for this," he added, stating that the affected clubs including Lyon are "willing" to start a legal action that would "recover EUR800 million in probable losses."
Ligue 1 is to date the only of Europe's top five leagues which has opted to bring the 2019-20 campaign to a halt.
