failed emissions question

I bought a 2000 TJ about 2 months ago from a used car dealer. I forgot about emissions testing until about 2 weeks ago.
It has failed 3 times so far. First time I had the cat and muffler replaced. Second time they replaced 1 O2 sensor after the cat.
I am trying to find out if it is illegal for a dealer to sell a car that doesn't pass emissions? Everything I have found refers to private party sales.
Anybody have any information that can help me out? I have a feeling its all on me since I got it tested after the 3 day rule.

The dealer is only responsible in the first 3 days, after that it is your responsibility as outlined here:
