was impugned / was challenged
Explanation:
It's hard to take this phrase out of context.

In full, "The contested ruling was impugned [or "was challenged"] on grounds that it accepted the jurisdiction of a French court for hearing complaints filed by XXX against YYY, ZZZ..."

Alternatives for "accepted" include "selected," "chose," or even "opted for"; and you could also translate "demandes" as "charges."

Hope this helps!
