Explanation:
(See my answer to your earlier question about this text)

Here again, it's hard to divide the sentence into isolated parts.

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."

Cheers,
