JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s board just approved a series of tweaks to its bylaws including one that pops out -- a new section defining what constitutes a quorum in the event of a “nuclear or atomic disaster.”

That scenario is listed among emergencies that might make it hard to hold a normal meeting. The clause can take effect if the U.S. is attacked or in a variety of other situations involving chemical or biological weapons, natural disasters or “acts of God.”
